Phoenix Events: 8th Annual Phoenix Cooks, September 1st

Looking for something fun to do this weekend, Phoenicians?   I’ve got a great event to share, but you better  come on an empty stomach, and be ready to sample some seriously delicious cuisine!

The 8th Annual Phoenix Cooks! is a colorful and flavor-filled food and wine festival to benefit Phoenix Children’s Hospital. Diverse restaurants from around the valley come together to provide food and cocktails and highlight the best cuisine and libations Phoenix has to offer. Entertaining live stage demonstrations and intimate classroom sessions provide a unique look at master chefs at work and showcase their true passion and talent. This unique event is perfect for your Labor Day weekend! 

Phoenix Cooks! takes place Saturday, September 1st, at the Westin Kierland Resort, from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.!

You’ll have an opportunity to try cuisine from Phoenix-area chefs, such as Siegfried Hohaus from Mastro’s Ocean Club, Micheal Cairns from Prado, Lee Hillson from the Royal Palms, Shin Toyoda from Sushi Roku, and Jeff Hostenske from Z Tejas.

In addition to trying delicious food and wine, you’ll have a chance to learn from the pros in the Phoenix Cooks! cooking classes.  Each class is 30 minutes long, with a capacity of 25 students per class.  Classes are available through out the day, but it is recommended that you reserve your seat early.  Advance tickets for the classes are $10 per person, and $15 the day of the event (if there are still seats available).  Class topics include Argentinian Grill, Mediterranean cuisine, Bread Pudding in a Blender, and Beef O’Nomics.

Tickets for Phoenix Cooks!  are available for $75.00 per person for general admission & designated driver tickets are available for $40.00 per person.  To find out more information and to order your tickets, visit the Phoenix Cooks! website  or call 602-374-6000
