Taste of Atlanta Preview

Garden Chef Christina Curry was invited to guest blog about the upcoming Taste of Atlanta Preview at the Garden as well as her upcoming appearance at Taste of Atlanta.  If you've been meaning to catch a Garden Chef demonstration in the Edible Garden Outdoor Kitchen, make sure you mark your calendar prior to our last demos of the 2010 season on October 31.

Fall is in full swing and it is the perfect time to check out the Atlanta Botanical Garden and see what’s cooking in our outdoor kitchen.  My name is Christina Curry and I am one of the Garden Chefs at the Atlanta Botanical Garden.  The Edible Garden and Outdoor Kitchen are a wonderful addition to all the beautiful attractions that have brought visitors to the Garden for years.  As one of the chefs, I am able to harvest, prep and cook with the herbs and vegetables that have been growing each season.  It has been a great experience working in the Edible Garden Outdoor Kitchen, and we have prepared some delicious recipes this year.

With just a few weeks left before our demo season is over, we have some exciting things coming up.  On October 16, Shane Tuohy of Dogwood, Dave Larkworthy of Five Seasons Brewing, Marie Nygren of Serenbe, and Joe Truex of Watershed will join us in the Outdoor Kitchen for the Taste of Atlanta Preview.  Each will prepare a dish keeping with the seasonal theme that we embrace weekly at the Garden.  Later this month we invite you to come out and support us at the one of the country’s best food festivals, Taste of Atlanta.  I will be doing a cooking demo on the Farm to Festival stage on October 23, at 1:00 p.m.  The Taste of Atlanta presentation will be an extension of what we do at the Garden every weekend.  Mark your calendar and come on out!
