Advice for Sctsdl Culinary Fest Virgin- Scottsdale AZ

Hello All,

The hubby bought us tickets for the grand tasting this Saturday and being this will be our first time to one of these events I was hoping to get some advice from those who had been before.

There is a lot going on in for guest speakers such as Ming Tsai, Stephanie Izard (Top Chef), Jaques Pepin, Kevin Binkley etc.. all which I would love to see, however with each performance being scheduled every hour on the hour I am wondering how one has time to eat and sample the wines. Looks like we will have to be choosy in who we decide to see so that we are able to sample all the yummy eats. Any advice for tackling this event?

  1. You may want to rename the title of this post while you still can - it's Eats3, not Scottsdale Culinary Fest (which is a completely separate event in April).

    BTW - this is a brand new event.
