UPDATE: I’m going to notify the winner this morning. Thanks all who entered. By the way some comments did end up in the spam filter for some reason (no clue why) but I retrieved all comments before drawing.

You’re in luck.

Look what we have here in our hot little oven mitts, fresh out of the oven: a pair of general admission tickets good for this Sunday. Each ticket grants you admission plus 10 tasting tickets. That’s a lot of free food, friends.

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.

VIP tickets (includes 15 taste coupons and access to Wine+Beer+Cocktail Experience) are $75 in advance; $85 at the gate. The first 300 ticket holders each day receive a festival gift bag.

Once you’re in, you use the taste tickets to “buy” a sample of whatever you want to try. If you run out you can buy more once you’re inside.
