The  five-course dinner is highlighted with gourmet dishes such as yellowfin tuna & locally grown beet carpaccio, house made charcuterie, Cabernet braised monkfish tail, grass-fed beef tenderloin, and a caramelized French butter pear bread pudding with black current cardamon ice cream and poppy seed streusel.  Each course will be paired with wine from the Markham collection. $95++ per person, seating is limited and reservations are required. Call 480-905-7979 for your last minute reservations. 

White Chocolate Fudge

If you're a fan of Hersey's Cookies & Cream candy bars then you probably want to make a batch of Averie's White Chocolate Cookies & Cream Fudge ASAP. You can throw it together in minutes and since it's no bake, you can just toss it in the freezer while you're making dinner. Bonus -- you can easily make this fudge vegan or gluten free by using coconut milk and the right cookies. Yum!
