So Many Neighborhoods, One Incredible Festival

October 24, 25, & 26, 2014


The Kitchen Workshop

Free With Festival Ticket

Both skilled home cooks and those still learning to boil water are coached by renowned local chefs who provide step-by-step instruction in The Kitchen Workshop, presented by The Cooks Warehouse. Guests become students of the culinary arts as they roll up their sleeves for this hands-on cooking experience that has each class leaving with a recipe they can make at home and a feather in their toque. Complimentary for Taste of Atlanta guests to attend, the approximately 45-minute segments accommodate four to six people at each of the 10 cooking stations.
