Only 10 days remain to purchase tickets for the Valley’s premier foodie fête, featuring an all-star lineup of local chefs, winemakers, brewmasters and mixologists. Like most things lately, that lineup will look a little different this year, as Local First Arizona’s signature event, Devour, will take place on your couch, at your kitchen table or in your dining room.

Enter Devour at Home, a COVID-conscious dining experience from the comfort of your own home with delicious, family-style meals from some of the state’s culinary leaders. Taking place Saturday, February 27 and Sunday, February 28, each day will feature a select roster of renowned Valley chefs and limited, one-night-only prix fixe menus from their award-winning eateries.

Now in its 12th year, Devour will include exclusive virtual experiences with participating chefs and a plating contest with prizes that include hundreds of dollars in gift cards. Plus, 100 percent of proceeds go directly to local restaurants.

Diners will receive four Devour Culinary Classic signature wine glasses, warming instructions, chef bios, a 2021 Devour at Home placemat, a commemorative tote bag and fun additions from the event’s sponsors, which include the Arizona Office of Tourism, Arizona Federal Credit Union and Shamrock Foods.

Saturday’s participating restaurants include The Breadfruit & Rum Bar, Cibo Pizzeria, Gallo Blanco, Gertrude’s, House of Tricks, the larder + the delta, Parlor Pizzeria, Southern Rail and the Wrigley Mansion. On Sunday, foodies can look forward to menus from Aioli Gourmet Burger, Beckett’s Table, Citizen Public House, The Gladly, Hana Japanese Eatery, Nook Kitchen and Rancho Pinot. Dinners from Sel and FnB have sold out. Click here to view the remaining menus.
