Hungry for your early morning serving of food news, with no preservatives or additives?
Paradise Valley's luxurious Elements wants to feed you this summer -- so they came up with an "affordable" prixe-fixe menu for two to lure the foodies in. Created by executive chef Beau McMillian, guests can enjoy their choice of tomato and watermelon gazpacho or local organic greens with a soy sesame vinaigrette to start, pasta, chicken or shrimp tempura for the main course and either the PB Bomb or strawberry rhubarb funnel cake for dessert. Chef Beau & Co. are even throwing in a half bottle of Veuve Clicquot (that means fancy French champagne). The new three-course prixe-fixe menu starts at $100 ++ and will be served from 5:30 till 9 p.m. Sunday through Wednesday. Call 480-607-2300 for reservations.
Chocolate Breakfast Smoothie
Chocolate for breakfast? Yes please! Once summer hits, we ditch the pancakes and go for fruit smoothies. We love Linda Wagner's Chocolate Smoothie -- bananas, chocolate powder, almond milk and Stevia. Quick, vegan, and sugar free. The perfect breakfast or anytime snack.
