Go Eat Give, founded by international cuisine enthusiast Sucheta Rawal, works to promote cultural awareness and global experiences for Atlanta’s already diverse population. Though its widely popular Destination Dinners, Go Eat Give offers people the opportunity to taste the food and experience the culture of a new country, even if they are not able to travel to the country itself. Go Eat Give also organizes volunteer vacations. These trips (going to Cuba, India, and Bali in 2014) create the chance for participants to engage with local populations, work on a community service project, and see historical and other tourism sites. Simply put, Go Eat Give’s mission is to connect “people, places, and palates”.
Hal’s Kitchen, created and owned by Cyndi Sterne, offers classes teaching a modern and fresh approaches to creating exciting new foods for groups including private events and corporate team building. Previously the Cooking School Instructor at the Marcus Jewish Community Center, Sterne is the ultimate guru when it comes to culinary entertainment. She has an enthusiasm for good food that is equally focused on sharing this love with her classes.
These two dynamic organizations are teaming up to offer international cooking classes. Classes will be held at Hal’s Kitchen, which is located at 2710 Apple Valley Road NE in Brookhaven. Each class will focus on the cuisine of a certain region or country. Some classes will be demo-style with celebrity chefs; others will be hands on classes led by chefs from local restaurants. The cost of each class will be $45-$70. Upcoming classes and more information can be found at http://www.goeatgive.com/
To kick-off the 2014 schedule of classes offered by this new partnership, Hal’s Kitchen and Go Eat Give have planned an open house on Sunday, January 12 from 3:00-6:00pm. The event is free, but does require an RSVP, which can be completed at http://www.eventbrite.com/
