Heirloom Tomato Dinner at Binkley's in Cave Creek June 19
A selection of Arizona-grown heirloom tomato varieties
McClendon Select Farms
The most versatile -- and perhaps most succulent -- of summer fruits isn't the peach, blackberry, or mango. No, it's the humble tomato, often overlooked as a mere sandwich topping or fodder for bland canned sauces. Join chef Kevin Binkley on Wednesday, June 19, as he honors heirloom tomatoes with what's sure to be a decadent five-course meal (with a multitude of amuse bouche and intermezzo plates thrown in the mix).
