Tweezers v. Tongs Dinner Featuring Chefs Kevin Binkley and Chrysa Robertson
Kevin Binkley and Chrysa Robertson are teaming up for a one-night dinner event.
In fact, they've long debated — okay, joked — about whether Binkley's elaborate, precise food (often crafted using tweezers) or Robertson's natural, rustic food (she uses using tongs and a grill) is best.
Next month, they'll try to settle the argument once and for all. On Tuesday, September 15, at 6:30 p.m. chef Kevin Binkley of Binkley's Restaurant, Bink's Scottsdale and Midtown, and Cafe Bink will team up with chef Chrysa Robertson of Rancho Pinot for a dinner event called Tweezers v. Tongs.
For each course, the chefs have chosen several seasonal ingredients and each will prepare a different dish using the same ingredients for each course. Here's a preliminary menu:
Welcoming Bites and Sparkling Wine
Tickets to the dinner, to be hosted hosted at Rancho Pinot, cost $90 per person and will included a welcome glass of sparkling wine. Seating will be at large community tables. Due to the nature of the dinner, the chefs will not be able to accommodate dietary restrictions or allergies.
For a reservation, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 480-367-8030.
Chrysa Robertson has been creating excellent rustic fare at Rancho Pinot for decades.
