Taste of the Nation 2011

There is a special place in my heart for Taste of the Nation, one of Atlanta's premier foodie events of the year. As a fundraiser for Share Our Strength, Taste of the Nation has been helping end childhood hunger among American children for 23 years. This will be my fifth year helping with the event by working on the restaurant committee. Getting an inside look at the hard work and planning that go into an event like this has been such an amazing and inspiring experience. The dedication from Share Our Strength's volunteers and from Atlanta's chefs is a clear sign of how deliciously fun this year's event will be.

This year's fundraiser is slated for Thursday, April 14 at the Georgia Aquarium and will honor chefs, like Aria Executive Chef/Owner Gerry Klaskala, who have supported Taste of the Nation Atlanta for 10 years or more. More than 50 of Atlanta's top restaurants will be on hand with flavorful dishes and wonderful wines, including Aqua blue, Aria, Davio's Northern Italian Steakhouse, Marlow's Tavern and Woodfire Grill.

Tickets can be purchased online. General admission is $250 for the 7:30 - 10:00 p.m. gala. VIP ticket purchasers ($350 per person) enter at 6:30 p.m. for the preview party.
