Want to meet four of Tucson’s top chefs in one place?
The Carriage House is offering a backstage experience with the Chefs on a Global Stage event from 5 – 7 p.m. on Sunday, November 19.
This year, chefs Janos Wilder, Travis Peters, Brian Smith, and Michael Montesano traveled to four countries to represent our city. Tucson became the first city in the U.S. to receive the UNESCO City of Gastronomy designation.
On their journey, they visited France, Italy, Brazil, and Spain and served dishes that depict the unique flavors of Tucson.
Now, it’s your chance to relive and taste their adventure around the world.
Tickets are $40 per person, which includes tastings of each dish and two drink tickets.
