Atlantic City isn't just for gambling anymore, officials there say, as the city's culinary scene continues to evolve with more restaurants, high-profile events, wine tastings, cooking classes and more.

The 9th Annual Chefs at the Shore runs June 21,a benefit at the Atlantic City Aquarium with live cooking demonstrations of signature dishes from area restaurants. All ticket proceeds benefit the aquarium and the Professional Chefs Association. For info, visit www.acaquarium.com

Four days of great grub and vino is the Atlantic City Food and Wine Festival July 26-29, the showcase event of the year for the city's culinary scene that highlights the city's culinary offerings. Check it out at www.acfoodandwine.com

There's also regular stuff going on in the culinary world in Atlantic city, including pizza-making classes every Saturday morning at Tony Boloney's, where the owner takes guests through a brief history of the area and then teaches how to make a pizza from scratch. Cost is $60 per person, and for more info, visit www.tonyboloneys.com. The Viking Cook School at Harrah's Resort offers culinary classes, such as those in bayou-country cuisine. Check it out at www.vikingcookingschool.com
