The airport food festival will include a chef competition with judges including “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kandi Burruss, TV host Steak Shapiro and CNN correspondent Holly Firfer. Hosts during the event include radio personality Frank Ski and “Food Network Star” finalist Jernard Wells.
The event will also include a chef demo by “MasterChef “Junior season five winner Jasmine Stewart, a student at the Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta who lives in Milton.
The Taste of Hartsfield-Jackson will be held in the Atlanta airport’s domestic terminal atrium, a pre-security area of the airport, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesday Oct. 29.
The event is open to the public, with 10 tasting tickets sold for $15. The airport said proceeds will benefit the Atlanta Community Food Bank, leftover food will be collected by food recovery vendor Goodr to go to those in need, and some waste from the event will be composted.
