Chattahoochee Food Works opened its doors mid-May in Atlanta’s Underwood Hills neighborhood. The 31-stall food hall resides within The Works, an 80-acre complex along Chattahoochee Road. With 15 of the stalls already open (and more opening soon), the food hall has an energetic buzz about it right as they start serving food at 11 am.

Culinary historian Dan Kohler’s recent opinion piece in The Washington Post recounted how the Cooking Channel — a sister to The Food Network — wouldn’t allow him to reference slavery on his cooking show.

In contrast, a Lowcountry lifestyle blogger said she didn’t experience any pushback when detailing the history of Juneteenth for a series airing this month on Food Network’s website.
