The Gastronomic Union of Tucson (GUT) is hosting a five-course Wild West Dinner at the Carriage House from 6 – 9 p.m. on Sunday, August 26.

If you’re not aware, GUT is the collaborative venture of some of the best and most-acclaimed chefs that helped influence Tucson’s UNESCO designation as a World City of Gastronomy.

All five courses of the menu are inspired by the Spanish traditions, indigenous cuisines, and foods brought over from European and Chinese settlers to reinterpret the Gastronomic scene from the 1800s.

Seating will be limited and is $75 per person. Tickets are available at gutucson.org.
