Sugar, Spice and Everything NICE: Pastry Live 2014

August 24th to August 26th

As Atlanta becomes recognized and perceived as a foodie city, it’s only appropriate that the best food festivals and competitions bring people from around the country and the world to the city.  During the last week of August, the largest pastry competition in the country, Pastry Live, happened in downtown Atlanta.  Pastry Live was created by chefs for chefs as a way to bring the industries best chefs together to compete.  The annual event has grown significantly that this year (2014) the competition was moved to 200 Peachtree St, one of the largest special events venues in the heart of the city. Each day had a different schedule of competitions for culinary students and professionals.  Various awards, such as Chocolatier of the Year, Art of Cake, and Best Sugar Showpiece, were evaluated and scored by a panel of experienced judges.  The audience also got a chance to participate in the voting during the People’s Choice category.  For those with a sweet tooth, Pastry Live is like stepping into Willie Wonka’s Chocolate Factory for 3 days and going into sugar shock.  The venue constantly had a flow of attendees throughout the competition that experienced fine desserts, chocolates, cakes, and more.

The Largest Taste of a Southern City: Taste of Atlanta 2013- Midtown (Georgia Tech Square)

The Largest Taste of a Southern City: Taste of Atlanta 2013- Midtown (Georgia Tech Square)

Taste of Atlanta is an event I always look forward to every year.  This was special because I had VIP access to any and everything at the festival.  Over 90+ restaurants, food trucks, caterers, wineries/ breweries, etc. were showcased for the 2013 event.  It can definitely be overwhelming for a foodie, but I was up for the challenge.  Now mind you, I am petite and only have one stomach.  I did not sample every vendor there, but I did strategically try samples of the new and up and coming vendors and the ones that sparked my interest from their presence and presentation.  I also took cards of the vendors I would follow up with and review at another time.
