Upcoming Events

What: Pop-Up Tucson Dinner
When: Friday, January 27th
Where: To be revealed

If you resolved to be a more adventurous eater in 2017, then you won’t want to miss the fifth Pop-Up Tucson dinner. If you aren’t aware, Pop-Up Tucson consists of an underground group of chefs that provide one-of-a-kind dining experiences. For starters, the location of the event isn’t disclosed until 48 hours before the dinner is set to take place; I have it on good authority that this one will be held at one of Tucson’s newest and most flourishing businesses. Secondly, the ingredients used in these clandestine-esque dinners are only fresh and/or local (#golocal). Thirdly and most importantly, the dinner is going to be paired with wine.

Chef Riley Chandler is going to feature his own personal mix of culinary influences in this dinner which means you’ll likely see a unique mix of Italian style with a Sonoran Desert fusion on your plate. Sounds delicious!

Take a look at the past Pop-Up Dinner menus here which have included exquisite items such as:

  • Blackened Serrano salmon sashimi, micro greens, saffron rice
  • Skillet cornbread with huckleberry jalepeno jam, manzanita sol carnitas, smoked peach salsita.
  • And, for dessert, a Pineapple foster  with piloncillo rum sauce, grilled pineapple, vanilla ice cream marbled with mango sorbet and shortbread cookie crumble.

Seats are limited to 50. The cost for this dinner is $100, which includes a 5-course meal with wine pairings. And if you’ve got up to 10 friends that don’t mind shelling out $125 each, then you can choose to sit at the Chef’s Table. At the Chef’s Table, you’ll sit privately near the kitchen and enjoy a closer seats to the sights and smells. Chef’s Table or not, you won’t want to miss out!

Tickets can be purchased here. Hope to see you there!
