Three chefs, three cities, and three restaurants in one place.

The Carriage House and chef Janos Wilder are hosting a special tasting event featuring the foods from three of Tucson’s sister UNESCO World Cities of Gastronomy from 5 – 7 p.m. on Thursday, December 6th.

Just a few years ago, Tucson became the first American city to be added to the UNESCO Creative Cities Network for gastronomy, which put Southern Arizona’s food traditions and culinary greatness on the map. Since then, the city has relished in the economic impact.

Each chef at the event will be serving dishes and a cocktail from a their choice of sister city. Janos Wilder of DOWNTOWN Kitchen + Cocktails will be representing Florianopolis, Brazil, Devon Sanner from The Carriage House is serving up food from Macao, China, and Travis Peters from The Parish will present offerings from Phuket, Thailand.

Tickets are $40 per person.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the “Tucson City of Gastronomy Traveling Chef Exchange Program” that gives funding to chefs from other cities to come cook in Tucson. In 2017, chef Wilder traveled to Paris, France, chef Peters went to Denia, Spain, and in January 2019, chef Sanner will visit Macao, China.

The Carriage House is located at 125 S. Arizona Ave. For more information and to purchase your tickets, visit carriagehousetucson.com or call (520) 615-6100.
