Thursday night Flavors celebrated the debut of the winter 2010 issue, Simply Irresistible. Taki hosted the event, deemed very appropriate as the cover dish was a masterpiece from one of their chefs. The party was complete with an array of scrumptious appetizers: sushi rolls, wontons and dumplings to name a few. The evening was full of food and fun. Carolyn O’Neil did a great presentation of the issue, highlighting charity events and recognizing talented members of the Atlanta culinary community. An array of door prizes were given away as well. Gift certificates from Pastis, Wildfire, Sage Woodfire Grill, and restaurants excited lucky winners.
After the presentation, I was lucky enough to stay and dine with the rest of the Flavors staff. It is always so inspiring to be around these women. Besides John Haigwood, the magazine’s photographer and co-owner/founder, the staff is comprised of smart and talented women. All of them are so accomplished and willing to help me as I begin my career. Their passion for food and love of writing makes the magazine an amazing place to work. Being a part of this fantastic magazine assures me that I am on the right path to a great career in the culinary industry.
