Seasonal tastes at the café's first pop-up dining experience.
Blue Sky Café at the Sky Islands Public High School is hosting their first Pop-Up Dinner at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, March 20.
In order to tastefully welcome the first day of spring, chef Aidan Gould is putting together the school’s first pop-up dinner of the season. Gould has created three courses for the event and each represents the diverse tastes you often find during each of the Tucson seasons.
In addition, the meal will be served with two hand-selected wine pairings.
There’s a lot to learn at this dinner, too. Sky Islands’ Projects and Site Manager and Urban Horticulture teacher, Michael Bagesse, will be informing everyone about the Farm-to-Kitchen Program at the school.
There is a suggested donation of $100 per person and seating is limited to only 30 guests. All proceeds directly benefit the Sky Islands Farm-to-Kitchen program.
