The world of food doesn't get more boozy and schmoozy than Dine Out With the Chefs and if your social calendar is looking a little bare the good news is the once a year event is just around the corner. From 3 to 5 p.m. this Sunday, September 7, Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts will become a hotspot for Phoenix food lovers.
