Yes, it's that time of year again! Taste of Atlanta is back to tantalize your taste buds. So after you've recovered from Oktoberfest, wind down at this year's event. In it's 11th year, Taste of Atlanta will be held on Oct. 5, 6, 7 at Tech Square in Midtown. The 2012 Best of Atlanta's readers pick for best food festival, this year's Taste of Atlanta is going to be big.

Featuring over 80 of the best restaurants in Atlanta, the event is offering a wide array of food from "around the city and around the world." The Shed, Noche, West Egg Cafe, Takorea, and Local Three are just a few of the restaurants that will be featured.

The food trucks, AKA this year's Best restaurant trend, will also be on hand. Grilldabeast, Mac the Cheese, and Sweet Auburn Barbecue will be there along with many others.

At the Home Plate Main Stage, watch chefs throwdown and compete with one another and learn from top chefs as they showcase live demos.

Stay ahead or catch up on the latest trends in food, as Atlanta's top foodies impart "valuable cooking skills and insight into the Atlanta restaurant scene" at Inside the Food Studio.

And don't forget about Taste of Atlanta's $20 Dinner demo, inspired by Creative Loafing's popular $20 Dinner column. This year, chef Drew Belline of No. 246 and chef Drew van Leuvan of the forthcoming Seven Lamps restaurant will be in the house to show us how to get a quick and easy dinner together for $20 or less.

Joining in on all the food extravaganza are Jay Swift from 4th & Swift, Ron Eyester from Rosebud and The Family Dog, Local Three's Chris Hall, and many more.

Tickets are on sale now. Get a taste of what Atlanta's about.
