Tickets are still available for the first Kosher Food & Wine Atlanta festival, set for Thursday night, Aug. 27, at the Georgia Railroad Freight Depot at 65 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive downtown.
The festival is the creation of Chabad of Georgia, based on similar upscale kosher festivals in New York, Miami and Los Angeles, and has almost 30 vendors lined up to help celebrate 30 years of Chabad in this state. Chabad’s operations include Congregation Beth Tefillah as well as the Chabad centers spread around the metro area.
The adult-only kosher festival also will honor An Added Touch caterer Sandra Bank, who has shown the upscale potential for kosher cuisine through her A Kosher Touch Catering.
The festival also aims to show that potential.
The vendors working toward that goal include Aaron’s Best, Ali’s Cookies, Avenue K, Cellar Filler, Classic Pita, Coca-Cola, Costco, Cotton Cravings, Dolce Catering and Bakery, For All Occasions and More, the Georgia Aquarium, Goodfriend Co., Gourmet Foods International, Goza Tequila, Herzog Wine Cellars, InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta, Keurig, A Kosher Touch, Kosherology, Kroger, Lisan Catering, ModernTribe, Pita Grille, Publix, the Spicy Peach, Sweetwater Brewing, Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, and Wolfgang Puck Catering.
