Truffle & Bacon Mac n’ Cheese, Spicy Tuna Hanabi and Bourbon Peach Beignet.

Do I have your attention? I know when I first read that delicious sounding sentence I was immediately hungry and intrigued. I found that sentence atop a press release describing the Top Foodie Highlights for the Scottsdale Culinary Festival. Taking place this Saturday, April 16th & Sunday, April 17th at the Scottsdale Civic Center Mall. If truffle & bacon mac n’ cheese doesn’t have you interested, something is wrong.

For those not in the know, the Scottsdale Culinary Festival is known as Arizona’s Tastiest Fundraiser. Hosted by the Scottsdale League for the Arts in its effort to promote the arts and arts education organizations in the Phoenix metropolitan area.

It is a great event for a great cause. Also, did I mention the restaurants? There will be 40 local restaurants making sure that you enjoy the full culinary experience. A couple of ScottsdaleRestaurants.com’s favorites will be in attendance as well like Black & Bleu American Grill, Dakota, our friends at Riot Hospitality Group will be showcasing their restaurants, and Two Brothers Tap House and Brewery will also be on site. To see the full list click here.

Aside from the food, there will be 30 craft breweries, 20 bands, a teen cooking challenge, chef demos, family zone, wine garden, and a vodka lounge. So, as you can see plenty of ways to “taste, sip and celebrate the Arizona food culture”.

I am a food lover, as well as a food fighter. I never underestimate the power of positive thinking. I don't get up before hitting snooze at least three times, and I haven't ever met an order of chips and salsa that I didn't like.
