Enjoy a special evening with The Breadfruit & Rum Bar presented by two of Arizona's acclaimed chefs. Chef Badman and chef Leoni will be celebrating the marriage between Arizona's bountiful produce and sustainable seafood with innovative, vegetable-driven cuisine and the bold tropical flavors of Jamaica. Honoring the role of those who connect us to the earth and ocean, this dinner is dedicated to our esteemed farmers and fishers who provide us such bounty. 

Join us for this rare event as we raise money for the James Beard Foundation's Impact Programs, which includes the Chefs Boot Camp for Policy and Change, a program that provides a unique opportunity for civically-and politically-minded chefs to become more effective leaders for food-system change.
