Mark your calendars for the “Afternoon in the country” event on November 4th at 1 p.m. hosted by Les Dames d’Escoffier at Serenbe near Palmetto. This is my favorite food event in the whole city. Click here to see my photos from last year. The event costs $35 for people between the ages 12-20 and the rest must pay $95. Kids under age 12 get in for free. www.lesdamesatlanta.org.

Georgia Organics first event for the new campaign will be an “Eat Local
Week” debuting on Sept. 20. A lecture by author Barbara Kingsolver at Emory University (which is now sold out) will kick off the festivities. More information on other events can be found at www.georgiaorganics.org/events and www.buylocalgeorgia.org.

Taste of Atlanta will be held at Atlantic Station from October 13-14th. Tickets range from $25-$60 and you can buy them at www.tasteofatlanta.net.

On September 20th, at 7:30PM, Wordsmiths Books (located in Decatur) presents Jenni Ferrari-Adler and Phoebe Nobles, two food critics and writers whose recent collection, Alone In The Kitchen With An Eggplant, explores the terror, excitement, trials and tribulations that accompany cook for one and/or dining alone.

Joel Restaurant is scheduled to re-open tonight after a massive renovation. www.joelrestaurant.com

Ricardo Ullio’s restaurant, Beleza is open and preliminary reports are favorable. Beleza serves Brazilian small plates and is located at 905 Juniper at Eighth Street. Not sure how authentic it will be given the background of chef Michelle McKenzie, but it looks like it might be a fresh concept with some worthwhile food. Hoping to hit it soon.

The AJC is reporting that an Atlanta woman has died after eating oysters at a local restaurant. You can view the full article by clicking here.
