Taste of Atlanta is just around the corner and I can't wait to sample the culinary talents of Atlanta's 90+ best restaurants. I attended this event last year, which it touted as Atlanta's premier food + wine + beer + cocktail event, and I am here to tell you there are many inventive gluten-free creations to taste and savor. At last year's event, I was part of the ‘Gluten Free Like Me’ demo on their Family Food Zone stage. This year, I am teaching a gluten-free cooking demo alongside Shaun Doty in the Kitchen Workshop Sunday, October 27 at 4:00 p.m.
CNN’s Emmy nominated journalist, Holly Firfer, will emcee The Kitchen Workshop, which is open to all festival attendees this year. The gluten-free cooking demo is hands-on and both Shaun and I will be making separate dishes, which you will have to come to the class to learn more about. Gluten-free cooking is easy and tasty, but it does require a little more planning and shopping for ingredients you may not have on hand.
Shaun Doty, owner of Bantam + Biddy and Chick-a-Biddy, prominently features gluten-free items at both of these restaurants, which highlight the vast experience he has compiled cooking gluten free. I have been cooking gluten free since I was diagnosed with celiac disease 16 years ago and I am all about quick, easy, and tasty dishes that will please a variety of palates.
Registration for The Kitchen Workshop classes is open to all attendees and it will begin at 11 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday at the event. There is no additional cost to attend the classes, but sign up early as they tend to fill up fast. General admission and VIP tickets are on sale now for $30 and $75. Tickets are sold at locations throughout Atlanta, including Cook’s Warehouse, Ticket Alternative, and Georgia Tech’s ticket booth outlets.
Taste of Atlanta runs Friday through Sunday, October 25-27 in Midtown at Tech Square. Come out and join in the fun and pick up a new cooking tip or two at the gluten-free cooking demo!
