We bet that you didn’t know that AmericasMart isn’t just a fun trade-show for home furnishings, it’s also a place to go to get great entertaining pieces and catch some exciting culinary events. From top-of-the line kitchenware to pretty tabletop, there’s everything you need to design a magazine worthy event.

In January, our Style Editor, Victoria de la Camara learned how to make craft cocktails at the mixology event. This September at Fall Design Week, we look forward to sharpening our skills at another cocktail course with the head bartender of The Lawrence in Atlanta. All this as illusory examples of how AmericasMart is the place to go to when you are entertainers and foodies like us. So without further ado, we present to you our quick-fire interview with Atlanta’s biggest chefs where we ask them anything from their favorite flavor pairings to why they are heading to Fall Design Week this year. Some of their answers will surprise you!
