James Beard Foundation's Taste America® Phoenix

In addition to Boston, our final weekend of James Beard Foundation's Taste America® was spent in Phoenix. On Friday we enjoyed a spectacular meal prepared by local James Beard Award winners and Taste America All-Star Suzanne Goin. We spent the next day at Sur La Table, watching cooking demonstrations by Goin and Check, Please! Arizona's Robert McGrath, and also tasted samples from local artisans Steve's Wonder Mustard, Laura Gourmet, Tracy Dempsey Originals, and the Mix Up Bar. You can view images from the weekend's event here.

We would like to extend our sincerest thanks to all our Phoenix participants! And even more thanks to folks who joined us in all of our Taste America cities!


James Beard Foundation’s Taste America® would not be possible without the generous support of our title sponsor, Chase Sapphire Preferred® Visa Signature®. We would also like to thank our retail partner, Sur La Table, our media partner, Every Day with Rachel Ray, andnational sponsors Breville, Delta Air Lines, The Gulf Oyster Industry Council, and Lurpak® butter.
