Last night I went to Genki to spend some time with Cooking Light magazine’s Chef Allison Fishman to learn more about this cook-off. First let me tell you she is such a sweet person and so were the reps who sponsored our meet up. Also, the food we ate at Genki was super fabulous. Have you ever had deep fried seaweed? If not, you are so missing out. If this is a glimpse into this weekend’s Taste of Atlanta – you don’t want to miss it!
Thought I would share this info from Cooking Light:

“HEALTHY COOK OF THE YEAR” AT TASTE OF ATLANTA
Four Finalists Compete in Live Cook-Off for $10,000 Prize Package
Cooking Light will host a live cook-off event at Taste of Atlanta on Saturday, October 23, 2010. Four finalists, chosen by readers and online users of Cooking Light, will compete in two rounds for the title of “Healthy Cook of the Year” and a prize package valued at $10,000. The first round of competition begins at 11:45am on the main stage of Taste of Atlanta.
In ordered to be considered for this competition, entrants submitted a three-minute prep-to-plate video of a healthy, original recipe on which they were judged. At Taste of Atlanta, the four finalists will prepare this original recipe in round one of the cook-off. In round two, beginning at 1:15pm, the finalists will prepare their own version of lightened up macaroni and cheese. The winner will be announced at 2:15pm on the main stage.
The finalists will be judged by Cooking Light Chef Allison Fishman, Atlanta-based Chef Marvin Woods, and Good Day Atlanta co-anchor Suchita Vadlamani.
