Go Behind the Scenes With Taste of Atlanta’s Inside the Food Studio

ATLANTA – Seasoning, skill, cooking technique, passion…all of these elements are part of creating the ideal dish.  But, what is the chef’s secret that takes food to the next level?  His or her culinary weapon of choice?  If you’ve ever watched a chef whip up a masterpiece and wished you knew his tricks of the trade, then you won’t want to miss Inside the Food Studio – the newest addition to the 9th Annual Taste of Atlanta festival Oct. 23-24, 2010 – designed to give guests an insider’s look into all things culinary.
