Scottdale Culinary Fest starts today
It sounds like a marathon of food and booze:
The 30th Annual Scottsdale Culinary Festival kicks off six days and nights of eating, drinking, and schmoozing, with tonight's Friends of James Beard benefit dinner, as well as a sold-out wine tasting at Kazimierz. But don't worry if you didn't get your ticket. The festival encompasses 13 different events through Sunday, including the Best New Chefs Reunion Dinner, featuring winners of Food + Wine magazine's Best New Chef honor, the Wine Country Brunch, and the Eat, Drink & Be Pretty Party (inspired by this year's theme -- better hope you don't have a bad hair day...)
