Saturday, May 5, 7 p.m. in the St. Mark's Church Courtyard (3809 E. 3rd St.)
Watershed Management Group presents our Second Annual Local Foods Iron Chef — one of the most unique fundraising events in Tucson. Join us for an evening celebrating local foods and our community’s culinary creativity. Click here to RSVP today!
Six chef teams will prepare gourmet dishes featuring local ingredients from partnering local farms and markets — including a special secret ingredient that we’ve just revealed to teams the week before the event. The lucky tasters (you!) will sample each dish and vote on your favorite to crown the winner of 2012 Local Foods Iron Chef.
Each chef team will be tasked with a specific variety of cooking (vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, and meat-featuring) and we've encouraged them to make their delectables desirable to different palates — so there will be something for everyone!
Soak up a Tucson sunset while you listen to local band Hey Buckos and sample a selection of locally crafted beer, Arizona wine, and other drinks. In the spirit of Cinco de Mayo, the food and live entertainment for this event will take on a Mexican flair.
Ticket cost is a $45 donation to Watershed Management Group ($30 is tax-deductible), with proceeds from this festive evening going to support our critical, community-based conservation programs. Last year’s Local Foods Iron Chef was a sold-out event with rave reviews — reserve your tickets now! Click here to RSVP by making your donation today — no tickets will be sold at the event.
In the spirit of sourcing local (and reducing our collective carbon footprint), we encourage alternative transportation the night of the event. We're providing plenty of secure bike parking for the occasion, and anyone who bikes or carpools (with someone who doesn't live at your house) will get free entry into our raffle featuring sweet prizes from local businesses!
We can hardly wait to see you there, taste what our talented teams of Tucson foodies serve up, and let you declare the winners!
