Chocolate-Covered Weekend!

Indulge in a weekend of cooking demonstrations, chocolate bites, and more this Saturday & Sunday, September 10 - 11 from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.!

Stop by the Edible Garden Outdoor Kitchen where Atlanta chocolatiers and pastry chefs whip up decadent treats or enjoy chocolate games and crafts with the family. Visit the cacao tree where it all begins and discover more about the chocolate making process.

Garden Chef Megan McCarthy likes to keep it healthy and fresh so she’ll be preparing Fresh Berries with Chocolate Sauce and Mint. Catch one of her cooking demos at 10 a.m. on Saturday and 10 & 11 a.m. on Sunday.

Taria Camerino from Sugar-Coated Radical returns to the Outdoor Kitchen with a savory and chocolate combo on Saturday at 11 a.m.

We’re excited to have The Atlanta Cupcake Factory back at the Garden. If you haven’t tried one of their delectable creations, you don’t want to miss this!

Cynthia Wong, pastry chef at Empire State South is sure to make you drool on Saturday at 2 p.m. with her Don’t be Afraid of Ganache! demo.

If you want to know more about how cocao beans become chocolate, be in the Outdoor Kitchen on Sunday at noon, 1 or 2 p.m. when Chef Robert Gerstenecker, Park 75 at the Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta, demos From Bean to Bar.

We love Lisa Smith, pastry chef at Bluepointe, and you will too. Stop by her tasting tent on the Great Lawn between 12:30 and 3 p.m. (or while supplies last) to sample Vahlrona chocolate Cremeux filled with Peanut Butter Pastry Crème, topped with Salted Caramel!

Also on the Great Lawn you can sample a lighter offering – chocolate tea by Just Add Honey.

In the Visitor Center you’ll be greeted or bid farewell with a fudge sample from Sweet Surrender Fudge.

Bring the whole family to Chocolate-Covered Weekend! If you have a future pastry chef at home, make sure you plan on joining the Chocolate Lollipops Drop-In Family Class from 1 – 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Nominal fee payable at the door, no registration necessary.

We’ll see you there!
