For four days this spring, Scottsdale will be heaven for fine food aficionados with the debut of Nirvana, a culinary festival hosted by Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain Resort & Spa. Destined to be an annual event, the inaugural Nirvana will evoke “a flavorful state of mind” as it brings together festival-goers with world-acclaimed chefs and winemakers for a series of tastings, special meals, and a celebrity golf tournament, April 27-30, 2017.
If “a gourmet is a being pleasing to the heavens,” as French gastronome Charles Pierre Monselet once said, then Nirvana is certain to live up to its name. Sanctuary’s own star Executive Chef Beau MacMillan will share the spotlight with Robert Irvine, Todd English, Scott Conant and renowned chefs and mixologists from Scottsdale’s most exciting local restaurants. Also playing a starring role will be Arizona’s glorious spring weather and famous sunsets, with Sanctuary’s mountain perch offering the ideal vantage point.
Tickets are sold at www.NirvanaFoodandWine.com. A portion of proceeds will benefit HopeKids, an organization that provides ongoing events, activities and a powerful, unique support community for families who have a child with cancer or some other life-threatening medical condition.
Festival-goers can make it a vacation by reserving a casita, suite or private home at Sanctuary, one of the most celebrated resorts in the U.S. Room rates will start at $479 per night, plus tax and resort fee, with a two-night minimum. Book at www.NirvanaFoodandWine.com.
