40 Years of Philanthropy, Food and Fun

The Scottsdale Culinary Festival, one of the longest running food festivals in the country and the signature fundraising event for the Scottsdale League for the Arts, celebrates its 40th anniversary in 2018. Over time it has expanded from a weekend food festival to several culinary fundraising events throughout the year. Through these events, the Scottsdale League for the Arts has raised more than $4.5 million to support the arts in Maricopa County since 2000.

Apple Pecan Spiced Brie

Apple pecan spiced Brie is a great appetizer to serve at a holiday party or even just a cozy night by the fireplace! Calvados is an apple brandy, but can be substituted for apple juice or apple cider.

Popping Up

It was Lima, Peru 2010. I was pretty much inhaling mouthwatering, made-from-scratch authentic empanadas on a street corner with a local I’d just met. A few minutes earlier, we’d been standing in a line in front of a tiny make-shift outdoor booth about 20 people deep, for what I was promised were the best empanadas I would ever eat in my life.

Combining their Talents

Painter Amado Peña doesn’t know what to expect when he reunites with ceramist Rich Lopez for a unique collaboration at the Thunderbird Artists 25th Annual Fall Carefree Fine Art & Wine Festival, but that’s part of the fun.

Bowls of Benefit

Across the North Valley, artists have been doing just that as they fire clay molds and glass to create some of the most beautiful, unique bowls for this year’s Foothills Empty Bowls Lunch and Art Auction to honor World Hunger Day.

Butternut Squash and Mushroom Pasta

There is nothing better than a warm, creamy plate of pasta in the fall time. The Boursin cheese in this dish adds such a depth of flavor, and creaminess unlike anything else! Boursin cheese is available at most grocery stores. Feel free to add protein of your choice to this dish. As-is, this recipe is vegetarian friendly.
