Liquid Lunch

The Sanctuary’s midday epicurean course series is back for its 13th session, and this time they’re bringing in Jason Asher, a former Jade Bar bartender and the Nation’s Most Inspired Bartender of 2010, to speak about the world of craft cocktails.

Nowadays, Asher works mainly as a beverage program consultant for Young’s Market Company, so it’s rare to see him behind the bar. However, he’ll be serving up some knowledge and expert advice at the event on Saturday, August 2, to pair with chef Beau MacMillan’s heirloom tomato salad with buffalo mozzarella and Thai basil, Kahlua pork belly, and an apple tart with pecans and cheddar.

If all of that sounds good to you, you can reserve your place at the Lunch and Learn event with Jason Asher for $75 plus tax and gratuity by calling 480-607-2300. The prix fixe menu with included cocktail discussion takes place at the Sanctuary Resort and Spa, 5700 East McDonald Drive in Paradise Valley beginning at noon.
