On August 17, join some of Arizona’s distinguished chefs such as David Duarte, Brett Vibber, Tamara Stanger and Lisa Dahl at Around the World in 10,000 Bites. A special event in Houston, Texas hosted by the Houston Museum of Natural Science, this once-in-a-lifetime culinary event invites guests on a journey across 10 countries through 101 spectacular bites. Organizer Chef David Skinner: “The idea for this event started about five years ago after speaking to some of my restaurant guests about the best meals they enjoyed in different countries. I was amazed at the number of people who had not traveled much outside the United States…I recognized the opportunity to create something that was both gastronomically unique and educational…This event would not be possible without the help of Chef David Duarte who also saw the vision and quickly jumped on board to make it a reality, and the help and passion of all our invited chefs this year. One of the first chefs to say yes was my friend Dominique Crenn. As you may know, she was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and unfortunately will not be able to make the event this year. We will be donating a portion of the proceeds in her name for breast cancer research. The remaining proceeds will be donated to the James Beard Foundation. Around the World in 10,000 Bites will be the gastronomic experience of a lifetime. With 101 courses from ten different countries and incredible chefs making the most delicious bites imaginable – no other event will ever come close.”
