For my local Atlanta friends who like to host and entertain, I just found out about an event happening May 1st and 2nd at the Cobb Galleria Centre, The Metropolitan Cooking & Entertaining Show. This looks like its going to be lots of fun with loads of exhibitors, live demos, and tasting. Paula Deen, Bobby Flay and Mario Batali will also be making appearances and I’m sure the lines will be long and halls will be packed to seem them. I am a fan of all three and would be buying my tickets now (which are $20 in advance, $25 at the door), but sadly (not really) I will be on a cruise that weekend. I always love shows like this as they are a great excuse to get out of the house, get inspired by things I see, and come home with bags of free stuff, most of which is junk, but there are always a few useful things.
Anyway, I just wanted to pass this info along, and ask if any of my ATL friends make it there to let me know how it was.
