Phoenix Cooks

I'm on a mission to discover good food and fellow foodies in Phoenix. It's not proving to be an easy task. I'll blame it on the scorching dessert sun (for now).

So, where does one go, in search of previously mentioned food and foodies; A food festival.

Phoenix Cooks is an event whose beneficiary is the Phoenix Children's Hospital. Proceeds come from the selling of merchandise, tickets and specialty sessions.

General Admission tickets include access to all the food and wine tastings, marketplace and wine and dessert rooms. Advanced purchase tickets cost $65 + tax. New this year are Food Forum sessions. These sessions are sponsored by various 4 to 5 star hotels or other local kitchen moguls. The sessions are 30 minutes and cost $5 + tax. I signed up for Knife Skills being presented by the Scottsdale Culinary Institute and Desserts of the Mediterranean sponsored by the Royal Palms Resort.

In total, the whole day set us back $162.18. For more information, you can visit their website, Phoenix Cooks.
