This Weekend: Devoured in Phoenix

Valley foodies just adore this time of year as it is officially food festival season in Phoenix. To kick off the feasting festivities, this weekend the Phoenix Art Museum hosts Devoured Culinary Classic. On Saturday and Sunday, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., food lovers are invited to the Dorrance Sculpture Garden and Great Hall at the Phoenix Art Museum for culinary samplings from some of the Valley’s top restaurants and chefs (more than 50, in fact); plenty of wine, beer and spirits; wine and lifestyle seminars (James Beard Foundation Award winner Anthony Dias Blue is expected to speak); a cooking demonstration stage; AJ’s Fine Foods Dessert Lounge; and live music, including a performance from the Valley’s own Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers. Tickets are $69 at the door. Two-day tickets: $118 at the door. Museum members tickets: $49; two-day tickets are $85. (Members call 602.257.2124 to purchase tickets.) Proceeds benefit Local First Arizona and Phoenix Art Museum.
