Venue: Westin Kierland Resort & Spa in Scottsdale


Where can you find more than 50 of the hottest local chefs and restaurants all under one roof? The 9th Annual Phoenix Cooks!


Westin Kierland Resort & Spa in Scottsdale will be the place to be Saturday, August 31 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. This event is sure to “Ignite Your Appetite” as well as the appetites of more than 3,000 Valley foodies who are expected to attend.


Each year, Phoenix Cooks serves as a convenient and exciting way to taste the signature dishes of restaurants including Maestro’s, Prado at the Montelucia, A Different Pointe of View, Hyatt Regency at Gainey Ranch, The Buttes and deseo at Westin Kierland. For a flat ticket price, one can peruse the expansive ballroom filled from wall to wall with vendors from the hottest eateries in the Valley. In addition to booths where one can get tastes and samples of delicious dishes, there will be more than 30 wine, beer and mixology sampling booths providing creations sure to please.


After sampling some out-of-this-world dishes, go home with the skills and techniques to make some new creations! Expert chefs will be on hand demonstrating on stage and in classroom settings so attendees can have a “take home” and create something special on their own.


Possibly the best part of the day is that proceeds go to Phoenix Children’s Hospital. Eat well, acquire new skills, and help others at the same time! Bring the entire family and enjoy a day unlike any other in the Valley.
