It's been a few months since Minerva Orduño Rincón branched out from her role as a line cook at FnB to create her own brand of handcrafted Mexican food products, Muñeca Mexicana.
Now she's ready to host her first pop-up, a limited-seating one-night-only event at the Scottsdale artisan venue, JAM. And from the looks of the menu, this one's going to be good.
The five-course meal includes a mix of familiar and traditional Mexican ingredients - think bay scallop ceviche, chimichurri, elote blanco, mole poblano, prickly pear, plantain ice cream and more. The meal will also begin with a cocktail involving tepache, a homemade fermented pineapple drink that originates from the state of Jalisco.
To reserve a seat for the event, which will take place from 7-9 p.m. on November 3 at JAM on Old Town Scottsdale, call 480-332-1885 or email minerva@munecamexicana. Tickets $85 person.
