Devoured Phoenix Palette to Palate Was a Nice Art Show Complemented By Food

Last night hundreds of food lovers took over the terrace at the Renaissance Phoenix Downtown Hotel for Palette to Palate, a new event added the Devoured Phoenix Culinary Classic lineup this year. It's actually an old concept; the idea for the event came from chef James Porter and his wife, Wendy, who owned the Tapatio restaurant at the time. For the event, organizers team up local chefs and local artists, and challenge each to create work -- food, drink, or visual artwork -- that's inspired by one another.

In practice, from what we can tell, last night's event didn't quite work that way but the good news is that it was an entertaining art show -- that also happened to feature some really good food.
