The Monthly Mashup series returns to Talavera this fall with a new line up of talented chefs, kicking off September 20 with The Breadfruit & Rum Bar. Each month, a prominent local chef joins forces for one night with Executive Chef Mel Mecinas for an unpredictable evening of culinary fun at Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North.
“We are thrilled to welcome a new group of chefs to Talavera for the fall series,” says Executive Chef Mel Mecinas. “The Monthly Mashups have continued to gain in popularity since launching last spring. The dinners give both chefs the chance to flex their culinary creativity and expand the boundaries of their traditional respective restaurant menus for one special night.”
The line-up for the fall 2015 series is as follows:
- September 20, 2015: Join Chef Danielle Leoni of The Breadfruit & Rum Bar for a Jamaican-influenced menu, paired with rum cocktails.
- October 4, 2015: Chef Matt Taylor of Gertrude’s at The Desert Botanical Garden presents a fall harvest menu, complementing Talavera’s steakhouse cuisine.
- November 29, 2015: Chef Joshua Hebert from Posh Improvisational Cuisine joins Chef Mecinas to present acaviar-influenced menu, accompanied by sparkling wine.
- December 13, 2015: Chef Matt Carter of The House Brasserie will work with the Talavera team for a holiday-inspired menu featuring all things truffle.
Each evening features a four-course tasting menu, with highlights from each chef’s culinary concept. The chefs will join forces for a specialty amuse course to start the culinary journey. The cost for each event in the series is USD 95 per person, not inclusive of tax and gratuity.
