It’s back! The Monthly Mashup series returns this fall to Talavera at Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North, marking the arrival of one of the favorite annual events of Valley foodies. Kicking off Sunday, Sept. 11, a prominent local chef joins forces with Talavera’s Executive Chef Mel Mecinas for a one-of-a-kind, four-course tasting menu each month through December.
“Each month brings a new challenge – and new level of excitement – both behind the scenes for the chefs, and in the dining room for our guests,” says Mecinas. “Brainstorming the menu is half the fun; you never know what to expect! Each chef brings their own unique perspective and culinary expertise to the process.”
2016 Monthly Mashup lineup:
Sept. 11: Chef Bernie Kantak of The Gladly
Oct. 9: Chef Cory Oppold of Atlas Bistro
Nov. 13: Chef Bob Tam of Bitter & Twisted Cocktail Lounge
Dec. 11: Chef Lisa Dahl of Mariposa Latin Inspired Grill
The cost for each event in the Monthly Mashup series is $95 per person, not inclusive of tax and gratuity.
