Hungry for your early morning serving of food news, with no preservatives or additives?
If you don't have plans this Saturday, we highly recommend you get your butt off the couch and get down to JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa for the first culinary event of the fall season, Phoenix Cooks! From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. , sample delicious eats from more than 50 Valley restaurants and resorts, sip wine from boutique wineries, and learn a thing or two at one of 20 chef demos. Participating chefs include Matt Carter from The Mission and Zinc Bistro, Tim Fields from Chelsea's Kitchen, Geoff Baumberger from Tanzy, and many more. Be sure to check out the 2nd Annual Latte Art Competition while you're there -- 30 baristas will enter, but only one will win. Click here to see the full schedule of events and to purchase tickets.
End-of-Summer Angel Food Cake
End of summer? Ha, wishful thinking! While the rest of the country talks about warm summer days coming to an end, we will just keep on sweating it up in our seemingly never-ending heat. Hot or not, we're still going to turn our oven on to make this pretty pink Strawberry Angel Food Cake. We may be sweating but at least our sweet tooth will be satisfied.
