Culinary Creativity Awesomeness!
The Event: Monthly Mashup Series at Talavera
The Date: Starting March 22nd
The Creator: Four Seasons and Chef Mel Mecinas
Talavera welcomes guest chefs for nights of culinary creativity
Two chefs, one kitchen. Enjoy an entirely new restaurant concept for one night only at the new Monthly Mashup series at Talavera at Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North. One local chef will step out of their kitchen – and into the kitchen of Executive Chef Mel Mecinas to join forces for an unpredictable night of culinary fun. The series kicks off on Sunday, March 22, with guest restaurant SumoMaya and Executive Chef Matt Zdeb.
“The best way to grow as a chef is to partner and learn from other chefs,” says Executive Chef Mel Mecinas. “Taking two concepts and blending them together – for one night only – gives each chef the opportunity to expand their skills and offer diners a truly unique experience.”
The series begins on Sunday, March 22, with popular local restaurant SumoMaya, and Executive Chef Matt Zdeb. On Sunday, April 19, Talavera will welcome Executive Chef Gio Osso and his award-winning restaurant Virtù Honest Craft. Executive Chef Christopher Gross will bring Crush Lounge to Talavera for the May mashup, serving a unique menu to guests on Sunday, May 17. The series will continue throughout the summer months, featuring these popular restaurants: Barrio Café, June 14; Beckett’s Table, July 19; and Crudo, August 23.
Each evening will feature a four-course tasting menu, with highlights from each chef’s culinary concept. The chefs will join forces for a specialty amuse course to start the culinary journey. The cost for each event in the series is USD 95.00 per person, not inclusive of tax and gratuity.
