Devoured

The courtyard of the Phoenix Art Museum was the setting for a gourmet event on Saturday and Sunday called Devoured. Many restaurants participated, showing off some of their best dishes. There were also quite a few wine distributors offering up sips of their vintner’s best. Some of the things I have pictured here are house made “moon pies”, chorizo stuffed dates, an assortment of imported olives, and a gorgeous celebration cake. Some things I tried, but didn’t photograph included a dessert composed of red and yellow beet custard topped with “pop rocks” and a liqueur. They called it “Rocking the Beet”.

It was a beautiful day for a culinary feast.

Your photos help illustrate why you were not able to finish the dessert at dinner on Sunday.

I would have eaten that whole bowl of olives! Good thing for everyone that I wasn't there. Looks like it was a fun event.
