Patrons can enjoy beverages and bites while learning valuable cooking skills and insight into the Atlanta restaurant scene. Whether highlighting the most unique condiments or Atlanta’s top spots for midnight munchies, this behind-the-scenes look offers unrivaled insight into the professional kitchen.

· Grill Dome  - With demonstrations throughout the day, local grill-masters can watch as chefs cook up their specialties on these amazing ceramic grills.

· The Kitchen Workshop – Hosted by Mara Davis, The Kitchen Workshop is a hands-on cooking experience offering patrons a unique and enriching opportunity to learn how to create delicious dishes in their own kitchen. A wide range of classes and instructors provide the ideal interaction for patrons to enjoy themselves and learn interesting twists on basic cooking concepts and techniques.

“We are so proud to serve the city in this capacity and to show the world the amazing restaurants and chefs that help define Atlanta,” Taste of Atlanta founder Dale DeSena said in a statement. “We can’t wait to transform Tech Square into foodie heaven once again this year!”

General admission tickets are $25 in advance; $35 at the gate, and come with 10 taste tickets. Kids ages 13 and under get in free but will need a taste ticket to sample the eats.

Atlanta offers so much when it comes to food, the Taste of Atlanta is a case in point. Atlanta has become a melting pot for international chef’s which puts us competetive with the world. Because we offer such an array of cuisine it is so hard to visit each establishment. Being able to win tickets will enable me to promote to others locally, nationally and internationally, what makes Atlanta great.
