Hungry for your early morning serving of food news, with no preservatives or additives?

Portuguese Wine Tasting
Wednesday, September 22nd join Sportsman's North Scottsdale and The Arizona Chapter of AIWF for a special wine tasting of Portuguese Wines. If you are not familiar with The American Institute of Wine and Food, it was started back in 1981 to advance the appreciation of what we eat and drink. The Arizona Chapter hosts a number of events throughout the year that fill up fast.

Tomorrow's event will feature several Portuguese wines presented to you by Es Spears of Franklin Distributors. Chef Jenn Evens of Sportsman's will also be serving up special tapas creations as well. The tasting starts at 6:30. Tickets are $25 for AIWF members and $40 for non members. Click here for tickets. 

Grilled Cheese Heaven
Holy cow, our mouths started watering the second we laid eyes on that beautiful photo above. The Grilled Beer and Cheese Sandwich -- made by Gabrielle at honestfare.com -- is something we are going to make the second we have a spare moment to make a batch of homemade beer bread (our photos probably won't be as good though). Two different types of cheese and caramelized onions melted together on grilled cheese bread. Delish!

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
