Adam Benavides Chef Nobuo Fukuda
Brunch at Nobuo at Teeter House
On Sunday, August 18, sous chef Chris Bevington, a.k.a. "Mr. Brunch," will prepare brunch with chef Nobuo Fukuda at Nobuo at Teeter House in Downtown Phoenix. Chef Bevington's American-style dishes on the menu will get a little kick of Japanese flair, while Chef Fukuda will create traditional Japanese breakfast dishes -- with no Western twists. The limited number of diners can look forward to plates such as pork belly eggs Benedict with kanzuri Hollandaise and Arai Pastry brioche, as well as Om-Rice, an egg omelet filled with Japanese-style fried rice. Call 602-254-0600 for reservations.

Burundian Cultural Dinner
We won't judge you if you can't locate Burundi on a map. The landlocked eastern African country isn't exactly a top tourist destination. If you're adventurous, though, you might be interested to know that the Welcome To America Project is teaming up with Scottsdale chef Josh Hebert to bring a taste of Burundian life to the Valley of the Sun. The nonprofit organization's Burundian Cultural Dinner will offer diners cultural cuisine as well as a musical experience, thanks to the world-famous Burundian drumming group Komezakorenga. Travel vicariously at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church's Gangsei Hal at 6 p.m. Sunday, August 18. The event costs $15 for children ages 6 to 8 and students. Adults pay $35 each.
