In one weekend, Taste of Atlanta brings together the incredible energy and diversity of the city’s food scene. From the hot new restaurants to down home favorites, from ethnic eateries to small gems that are off the beaten path – if it’s great food, you’ll find it at Taste of Atlanta!

The 13th annual Taste of Atlanta returns to Tech Square in Midtown at Spring and 5th Street with over 80 confirmed restaurants and some of the best Chefs on Saturday, October 25th and Sunday, October 26th. Volunteers are the key to making this event a success.

We are seeking passionate, enthusiastic and committed culinary students and alumni to volunteer as Chef Assistants during the 2014 Taste of Atlanta. Chef Assistants will gain hands on-culinary experience and work with local chefs or restaurants throughout the day as they prepare and serve their tastes at the event.

Taste of Atlanta is an excellent opportunity to network with local chefs and restaurants and people from around the world!

Chefs and restaurants participating in the festival include:

Ford Fry of JCT. Kitchen, no. 246

Ron Eyester of Rosebud and The Family Dog

Archna Becker, Bhojanic

Doug Turbush, Seed
