And though the event's been a part of the Valley's culinary event calendar for years, this year's lineup has a few surprises in store.
The chef/artist pairings for 2016's Palette to Palate include:
- Chef Chris Bianco and Leonardo Bianco
- Chef Justin Beckett and James Angel
- Chef Silvana Salcido Esparza and Casebeer
- Chef Joshua Murray and Jesse Perry
- Chef Stacey Carson and Jonathan Buford
Another unexpected pairing comes from Arizona Wilderness Brewing Company executive chef Stacey Carson and Arizona Wilderness Brewing Company creator Jonathan Buford. In addition to starting the nationally recognized Gilbert brewery, Buford is also a professional photographer.
At the event, which will be held at the Renaissance Phoenix Downtown Hotel on Thursday, March 3 at 6 p.m., guests can expect new works from each artist, Arizona wines, and food from each chef. Tickets cost $40 and can be purchased online.
