Mix it up with Talavera at Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North this spring with the return of the Monthly Mashup series, kicking off Sunday, March 20, with Bootleggers Modern American Smokehouse and Chef Fidencio Alatriste.

Each month, one prominent local chef joins forces with Executive Chef Mel Mecinas for an unpredictable evening of culinary fun.

“This is an amazing culinary community, with talent rivaling any major city,” stated Chef Mecinas in a press release. “We started the mashup series last year to celebrate our local chefs and welcome new creativity into our kitchen. The response has been overwhelmingly positive, and we can’t wait to return this spring with an exciting new line up.”

The spring 2016 series is as follows:

  • Sunday, March 20 – Bootleggers Modern American Smokehouse, featuring Chef Fidencio Alatriste
  • Sunday, April 24 – Noble Eatery, featuring Chef Claudio Urciuoli
  • Sunday, May 22 – L’Auberge Restaurant, featuring Chef Rochelle Daniel
  • Sunday, June 19 – El Chorro, featuring Chef Kelly Fletcher

Each evening features a four-course tasting menu, with highlights from each chef’s culinary concept.  The chefs join forces for a specialty amuse course to start the culinary journey.

The cost for each event in the series is $95 per person, not inclusive of tax and gratuity.
