Best Culinary Festival - 2012
Devoured Culinary Festival, Phoenix Art Museum
1625 N. Central Ave.
Phoenix, AZ 85004
Local First Arizona, R Entertainment, and the Phoenix Art Museum hit another hit run with this year's perfectly executed Devoured Culinary Classic. More than 40 of the Valley's best chefs and restaurants filled the museum's grassy courtyard with tiny plate after tiny plate of bite-size signature dishes, unique takes on classic morsels, and colorful exotic ingredients. St. Francis introduced us to velvety glacier lettuce in its unforgettable Farmers Market Salad, Beckett's Table scored major crowd points for its adorable cans of salty pork and beans, and The District Kitchen wowed us with its impressive display of pastel cotton candy, caramel cashews, and beautiful summer spinach salad. The event was packed full of foodies of all ages (including a few wee little foodies in giant strollers) and everyone left stuffed. This event quickly has become one of the most anticipated food events of the year.
