Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

As if December didn't bring enough reasons to throw a party, the folks at Slow Food Phoenix are celebrating local bounty, the people who produce it, and even people who write about it.

Local scribes/foodie gals-about-town Sharon Salomon and Gwen Ashley Walters each contributed articles about Phoenix's food culture (originally published in Edible Phoenix magazine) to a new national anthology of culinary writing, Edible: A Celebration of Local Foods.

So they'll be guests of honor at Slow Food's Holiday Party on December 20, where the evening's menu will feature local recipes from the book:

Pineapple Gazpacho by Gwen Ashley Walters Chile Rellenos by Barbara Fenzl 
Gingerbread Lamb with Fig Sauce by USA Lamb 

Quiessence Restaurant, profiled in an article by Salomon, will make a special seasonal dessert for a sweet finish.

The event is BYOB, and tickets are available on Eventbrite. Seating is limited, and books are also available for purchase. Check-in is at 6:30 p.m. for the 7 p.m. dinner at AndyFood Culinary Studio in Scottsdale.

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.
