Petite Maison's Offal Dinner Turns Organs and Odd Parts Into Elegant Cuisine

Scottsdale's Petite Maison restaurant celebrated the spooky season last weekend with the fourth annual Halloween Offal Dinner. The four course meal has been a tradition since 2010, when chef James Porter was inspired to create a menu that brought attention to just how sophisticated offal can be. Sure, chicken feet aren't as pleasing to the eye as a filet mignon, but as demonstrated last weekend, looks aren't everything.

If our list of the ten best offal dishes in metro Phoenix wasn't convincing enough, then Petite Maison's meal would easily have been enough to prove that organ meats can be the makings of flavorful, sumptuous cuisine.
