Phoenix gets Devoured on March 12 and 13, when the culinary event provides attendees with the opportunity to sample fine food and drink from independent Arizona purveyors in the elegant setting of the Phoenix Art Museum.

Hosted by the Phoenix Art Museum, Local First Arizona and R Entertainment Co., this culinary fete (from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day) features culinary demonstrations and gastronomic delights from local artisans, farms, food producers and vintners. Participants we’re most excited to see partnering with Devoured (some of which are making a return) for the event’s second year include Arcadia Farms Cafe, FRC’s new Arrogant Butcher, Barrio Cafe, Chelsea’s Kitchen, District American Kitchen & Wine Bar, St. Francis, Prado, Switch, Taggia, Talavera and The Vig Uptown.

Wineries will represent an equally wide range of tastes and styles; expect to see vino by Chateau St. Jean, Colores del Sol, Greg Norman, Jerome Winery, Santa Barbara, Souverain, St. Clement and TAZ, among others, as well as spirits and brews.

With admission to Devoured, guests will also receive general admission to the museum, affording them the opportunity to enhance their evening via study of some world-class displays. Exhibitions that are, or will be, open the weekend of Devoured include “Fashion Independent: The Original Style of Ann Bonfoey Taylor,” a collection of portraits by Sonia Noskowiak, and Théâtre de la Mode, as well as the museum’s permanent collection. So take a swill or two and then get right to discussing the finer points of Edward Weston’s influences on Noskowiak’s work.

An exclusive Palette to Palate VIP event will be held Friday, March 11, at 6 p.m., during which four celebrated Arizona artists will partner with four phenomenal Valley chefs to create unforgettable visual and edible works of art. The pairings are: Aaron Chamberlin of St. Francis with James Angel, James Porter of Petite Maison with Randy Slack, Peyton Curry of Cafe Boa with Geoffrey Gersten and Silvana Salcido Esparza of Barrio Cafe with Hector Ruiz. We can’t wait to see what these power duos come up with.
