Two-time reigning champ of Tucson’s Iron Chef and culinary mastermind Ken Foy is no stranger to high-stakes competition. But on Friday, September 29, his dinner guests will be treated to a different type of high.
Rounding out Tucson Foodie’s and Tucson Doobie’s cannabis-infused dinner club, the Stoney Summer Supper Series, chef Ken Foy (owner of Dante’s Fire) will be presenting a five-course expertly crafted and boundary-pushing culinary adventure. By experimenting with cannabis as an ingredient, he's taking cooking to a whole new level. But don't worry, he's not just throwing random buds into every dish.
Ken Foy's creativity lies in carefully crafting recipes that incorporate cannabis in a way that enhances the flavors and elevates the dining experience. And this late summer night will feature chef Ken at his finest: pushing the envelope of culinary innovation by offering dishes that include siphoned cannabis flower.
“It’s more than a dinner,” said Foy. “I am utilizing some cannabis flower from Downtown Dispensary, that’s high in the terpene caryophyllene, and that flavor will be siphoned through a rich tomato broth I created for a course highlighting beef cheek.”
Dinner guests will be treated to the live show of cannabis siphoning, headed by chef Ken Foy himself.
Don’t expect that to be the final show-stopper, chef Foy is also planning a course utilizing smoke-filled domed plates, a course that pays homage to the film "Half Baked," and even a winning dish from the Iron Chef 2023 Competition will make an appearance.
Seating is very limited, just 15 General Admission tickets and eight VIP tickets are offered. VIP includes early entry (6 p.m.), a welcoming mocktail, an amuse-bouche, and private time with chef Ken Foy at an intimate chef’s table. The location's details are sent to ticketed guests only, but the location is only a couple miles north of the University.
Imagine the perfect balance of cannabis-infused ingredients blending harmoniously with traditional flavors, resulting in dishes that are as delicious as they are daring. Get ready to embark on a gastronomic adventure like no other.
The dinner will be paired with selected cocktails crafted by mixologist Max Wingert and will feature PARCH’s Spiced Pinarita, a bold combination of Blue Weber Agave, prickly pear, spicy Mole bitters, and a proprietary blend of adaptogens.
Guests are also treated to gift bags, containing products from our sponsors: OGeez Brand Edibles, Downtown Dispensary, i.o. Extracts, iLAVA, zenzona, Envie Macaroon Edibles, Hemp Essence Beauty/Divine Elements, Simply Professional Formula.
