Joy of Cooking

Chocolate and peanut butter pot pie with grape jelly sauce and malted milk ice cream! When an event features star pastry chef Tracy Dempsey, this stuff just writes itself. But that's only the dessert course of Dempsey's visit to Phoenix Public Market's Winter Chef Series on Tuesday, February 7, co-sponsored by Maya's Farm and Crow's Dairy.

You'll also learn to shop for, prepare, and enjoy a yummy hibiscus-spiked Kir aperitif; goat cheese, dates, and bacon on field greens with orange pecan vinaigrette; and a savory/sweet pork tenderloin with cherry-bourbon sauce, accompanied by sweet potato gnocchi and sautéed greens. Each dish comes with a selected Arizona wine, beer, or coffee to wash it down -- um, we mean, complement it beautifully.
