The Grande is often booked for weddings thanks to its elegant ballroom, scenic courtyard, and talented staff of chefs and florists. However, the venue also welcomes everyday visitors to a tearoom to partake in the British tradition of parlor teatime. Servers embellish tiered trays with fresh scones and pressed sandwiches with pimiento cheese, braised pork, and other savory ingredients. They also steep leaves of varieties such as oolong or vanilla rooibos in teapots. Guests can dress up in traditional hats and gloves or classic American garb such as prom dresses.
Young Chefs Academy provides a fun, safe, and motivating environment for kids to become acquainted with the art of food and food presentation. Engaging chef instructors instill lessons of kitchen etiquette, safety, table setting, proper food handling, and more in youngsters who are growing up in a world full of laser can openers and pasta rakes. Classes vary at each location and educate a variety of age groups—with specially catered classes for the kindergarten elite (ages 3–5) and junior line cooks (around ages 6–11)—about basic food-prep skills for nutritional meals. Senior flambéists (teens and tweens) are offered advanced classes that dig deeper into kitchen secrets and hone specific skills and techniques that expand the parameters of cooking creativity. Check out the respective schedules for North Druid Hills, Sandy Springs, and Duluth to see what appeals to you.

Chris Cook found her calling when she was just 10 years old. Alongside her mother and six sisters she prepared a spread for a church fundraiser, and nearly everyone who tried their food pressed them to keep cooking. So Chris did. She cooked her way into the restaurant industry and opened up Soul Food Train with her sister LaVonda to showcase her scratch-made Southern recipes.
No corners are cut at Soul Food Train. Smoked turkey legs flavor the collard greens, five cheeses melt into the macaroni, and Sunday's specialty oxtails cook all day until the meat just falls off the bone. And to keep the recipes from becoming old-hat, Chris and Von switch things up on a regular basis, substituting fried okra with stuffed bell peppers and fried chicken with catfish. Everything is house-made daily using seasonally fresh ingredients to ensure each dish has the maximum amount of flavor possible without stuffing it full of Jelly Bellys.
