Challenge to the Chefs
Part of the Great Arizona Picnic, this event features four chefs, cooking on identical Viking cooktops, each presented with identical “mystery baskets” of ingredients. The challenge: create an appetizer and an entrĂ©e - all within a time limit - and you get to watch every move! Mixologists will also compete alongside the chefs using BOMBAY SAPPHIRE GIN to create new and innovative drinks as part of the challenge.
