Chances are good that if you've eaten at True Food Kitchen, you've heard of Dr. Andrew Weil. But in case you're not familiar with the name, here's a little background: Weil, who earned his medical doctorate at Harvard, is known as one of the biggest proponents of integrated medicine and holistic health. He's the author of nearly a dozen books, serves as the Director of Integrative Health at Miraval Life in Balance Resort, and lives right here in Arizona. 

He was also instrumental in helping restaurateur Sam Fox come up with the concept for True Food Kitchen. The restaurant's menu of health-focused fare adheres closely to Weil's anti-inflammatory diet, and next week you can dine with the doctor at the Biltmore location of the restaurant. 

The dinner, which will be held on Wednesday, May 4 from 6 to 8 p.m., will include a four-course meal and dessert, as well as beverage pairings selected by True Food Kitchen's beverage manager, Jon Augustin. You can view the complete menu below: 


First Course

Brandywine Tomato Bruschetta - almond ricotta, black garlic, garden herbs
Wine pairing - Torres Ibericos Crianza

Second Course
King Oyster Mushroom “Crudo” - yuzu kosho, white shoyu, avocado, thai basil 
Beverage pairing - Yoshinogawa Junmai Ginjo Sake 

Third Course
