Food Artisans are the New Rock Stars
What does the word artisan mean, exactly? Who cares? This year, the true experts in the Valley who focus on a particular food specialty will be the most sought-after. A natural pairing with the local trend, restaurants and chefs will be just as anxious to feature locally sourced ingredients in their dishes as they will home made artisan goodies such as honey, jams, beer, bread, and sauces.

Who's Already Doing It: In December, Gina Buskirk, of Gina's Homemade in Northeast Scottsdale, was named a finalist in the 2013 Good Food Awards for her ricotta. Buskirk's ricotta was selected from a pool of 1,366 entries from 31 states.
