From an aspiring chef’s cook-off to an outdoor brunch celebrating spring, the events our friends are hosting this month are sure to add a pleasant twist to your culinary routine.
Aspiring Chefs Compete for Scholarships in Cook-off
High school seniors and graduates who aspire to be chefs will put their culinary skills to the test as they compete for tuition scholarships on April 21 at The International Culinary School at The Art Institute of Atlanta. The competitors will each cook a two-course meal that must be prepared and served in two hours. The chefs must create shrimp cocktail, sautéed chicken breast with a creative garnish, and rice pilaf and broccoli sauté from recipes distributed in advance.
Professional chefs and culinary faculty will judge the aspiring chef’s meals on five technical skills including knife skills, safety and sanitation, organization, cooking techniques and clean-up, as well as five qualities of the finished dishes—temperature, taste, texture, portion size and presentation. The winners will earn tuition scholarships.

Auction Raises Money for Alliance Theatre
A few weeks ago, we wrote about “A Tony Evening” fundraiser that supported Alliance Theatre and its educational programming. If you weren’t able to attend, the good news is that a few items are still up for auction. To view the last few goods, please visit http://preview.tinyurl.com/7t49fus.
To celebrate the return of warmer weather, considering paying a visit to MARKET for its Spring Fling brunch on April 29. From 12:30 until 4 p.m., enjoy the restaurant’s full brunch menu outside on its patio (provided it doesn’t rain), music and bottomless Bloody Marys and mimosas for $14.
Reservations are strongly recommended. The restaurant also will provide a three-hour complimentary valet.
