Welcoming in the winter season, a new line-up of Valley chefs and taste makers has been set to host Phoenix Public Market's Winter Chef Series, two-hour demonstrations and cooking classes featuring a variety of memorable meals and culinary personalities.
Mark Tarbell, chef and owner of Tarbell's, the award-winning neighborhood restaurant in Central Phoenix, celebrated sweet-treat queen Tracy Dempsey, and new Noca chef Matt Tayor make up a portion of the Series, where attendees can enjoy two hours of tasty three-course menus, Arizona wines or beers, and take-home recipes -- not to mention some face time with some of the Valley's finest local culinary talents.
The Orange Table's chef Elizabeth Meinz kicks the off the Series with a breakfast for dinner menu. Keep reading for the full schedule and registration details.
The Winter Chef Series at the Phoenix Public Market is $55 for each two-hour demonstration and includes three courses paired with Arizona wines or beers and take-home recipes.
