Food Lovers Gather at Westside Provisions District to Celebrate Cooking Channel 2nd Birthday



Celebrating its second birthday, Cooking Channel is hitting the road this summer with their Summer Eats pop-ups offering an exciting and unique culinary experience for fans around the country. Cooking Channel is a new TV network dedicated to today’s passionate food lover. For food people, by food people, Cooking Channel is the answer to a growing hunger for more content devoted to food and cooking in every dimension from global cuisines to international travel, history and unconventional how-to’s.

This week was  Westside Provision Distric time to join the celebration. Due to inclement weather conditions the party was held at Abbatoir, a modern American restaurant in Westside.

Guests were  provided with complimentary, custom menus of food and beverages inspired by summer favorites.
