There are no monuments, historic sculptures or stories about ancient civilization. This city cares and lives only on food. I happened to go to the streets of Alpharetta on May 08th to experience taste of the town.
Chefs from restaurants all over the city came out to give people a taste of what they were cooking up. The annual Taste of Alpharetta brought thousands of people to the city for music, drinks and of course food.
The food portions were tiny samplers that allowed us to try many delicacies worth just 3 to 4 tickets. Each ticket was just 50 Cents! I think a great marketing strategy for food critics and restaurant owners back in India to promote their food business.
There were little plates filled with delicious appetizers, entrees, desserts and almost everything. Culinary demonstrations, activities and entertainment to please every palette. Music Stage with harmonic rock/folk/R&B bands.
A separate Culinary Stage with pair top area chefs against one another in contests. The contest included prizes for – Best Appetizer/Salad, Best Fast Casual Entree, Best Fine Dining Entree, Best Dessert, Best Presentation and many more sections.
Totally an experience worth enough but unfortunately I didn’t come across any new cuisine that wasn’t
available in India or something I tried for the first time. I may not have explored enough or may be India has developed a pallet for everything! Nevertheless, I will keep looking for something new. For the evening, I got what I wanted of all the food Counters. Sushi!
