Levine, who works full-time at Rancho Pinot in addition to working at FnB, is partnering with Colleen Frisbie, who works the front of the house at FnB. Together they'll be hosting a six-part dinner series called Backyard Jamboree.
Each of the six events will have a theme, think everything from Middle Eastern cuisine to a seafood boil in Hamptons fashion. Each of the dinners will also be held at a different location -- for the most part in backyards around Central Phoenix, according to Levine.
The first event is coming up on Sunday, October 27 at 5:30 p.m. and the theme will be Pumpkin Carving Party. In addition to pumpkins for carving, beer and cold toddies, guest can expect a menu featuring:
- butternut and aged cheddar grilled cheese
- kabucha squash and yuzukosho pot stickers
- roasted pumpkin and kale salad
- sweet potato and apple chowder
- maple roasted pumpkin labne with ginger snaps, apples and roasted walnuts
Reservations can be made by calling Colleen Frisbie at 480-246-1708 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Suggested cash donation for all events is $40 a person. For more information stay tuned to the Backyard Jamboree Facebook page.
