Okay, I’ve got my fork and knife ready. Where’s my bib?

The 11th Annual Taste of Atlanta (October 5-7) is always an exciting time of the year because there is so much food! Named one of the top food festivals in the nation, Taste of Atlanta will be the spot where you can sample dishes from over 80 of Atlanta’s best restaurants in one stop. My prayers have been answered.

There will be 3 live cooking stages where some of your favorite Atlanta food personalities will be cooking up a storm and teaching you about some of Atlanta’s newest food trends. You can sip on a smart cocktail or chug down a craft beer while you watch, of course. Some of the restaurants include Cafe Intermezzo, The Barrelhouse and even The Graveyard Tavern (which so happens to be one of my favorite places to grab a dish).

There will be many family friendly food events throughout the entire weekend. There will actually be a Family Food Zone where kids can learn how to cook healthy meals with demonstrations and cooking lessons from national and local chefs. There will also be a Top Chef Kids Competition where three young chefs-in-training will try out their skills with select regional ingredients. Hmm…wonder how that will turn out. Kids with pots and pans isn’t usually a great combination, but I believe they can prove us wrong!

Feast on!
