If you’ve got plans next Saturday night, cancel them. You aren’t going to want to miss this exclusive and collaborative ranch-to-table dinner with the man of the hour (well, happy hour that is), Chef Janos Wilder! Janos himself will be hosting and doling out cooking tips so make sure to bring your questions. The artisans of Double Check RanchFlying Leap Vineyards, and Three Wells Distilling will be also be onsite, doling out drinking tips. Sounds like a party!

You’ll start off with a “Mount Lemon Gin” cocktail from Three Wells Distilling, then savor some of the most exquisite pasture-raised beef dishes from Eloy-based Double Check Ranch, paired with wine from Flying Leap Vineyards. I was sold at the gin cocktail.
