Two great valley chefs unite for a tasting menu you can't get anywhere else - for one night only! Chef Rochelle of Fat Ox and Talavera's own Chef Samantha Sanz will create a custom tasting menu using their combined creativity, culinary skills, and keen eye for interesting flavor combinations and presentations. A portion of the dinner proceeds will benefit the Girl Scouts of Arizona Cactus Pine council!
