It’s not just popcorn, peanuts and Cracker Jacks anymore. Baseball is going gourmet.
This year, Kevin Rathbun opened the Kevin Rathbun Steak concession stand serving sirloin steak sandwiches by section 203 of Turner Field. And starting this week, the venue will host a series of cooking demonstrations by celebrity chefs in the Turner Field Cooking Suite.
Celebrity chefs will prepare a meal for each of these “Big Night Out” events developed around the cuisine of the visiting team’s hometown.
Of the ten events in the series, half will be hosted by Atlantan Herb Mesa, who competed on “The Next Food Network Star” and the other half will be hosted by Donna Rodriguez, who hosts the radio show “The Dishing with Donna Show.” Other chefs and restauranteurs including Kevin Rathbun, Bobby Deen and Emily Saliers will team up with the host to lead the demonstrations and prepare the meals.
Tickets cost $135 and include seating in the luxury suite, cooking demonstration, meal with beer and wine pairings and a Green Lot parking pass.
Here’s the lineup for the “Big Night Out” series:
