The proceeds from the Spirit Wall at this year’s Taste of Buckhead will benefit The Giving Kitchen. “The Giving Kitchen is the perfect organization to partner with for this year’s event,” said Smita Solanki, Executive Director of the BBA. “Their work in the community has been phenomenal, and we are excited to help the organization as they continue their mission to help workers in the restaurant industry.” The Giving Kitchen grew from an overwhelming response to the devastating, stage-four cancer diagnosis of Atlanta Chef Ryan Hidinger in December 2012. The response to was initially from friends within the restaurant industry, but expanded to an Atlanta-wide response. Hidinger was well-known in the Atlanta restaurant community for his work at Bacchanalia, Floataway Café and Muss & Turner’s. He and his wife, Jen, were beloved for the supper club called Staplehouse that they had been running for several years, as a build-up to starting their dream restaurant.
