There's a handful of reasons you might want to check out the Valley's newest Whole Foods location, including its in-house restaurant, bar, and coffee shop. But this week you can also catch Phoenix's pizza legend Chris Bianco in the flesh when he heads to the grocery store for an exclusive chef event. At 6 p.m. on Wednesday, he'll be discussing the importance of good ingredients, his Bianco Di Napoli tomato project and his philosophy about pasta. Bianco will also be doing a cooking demonstration of a pasta dish. RSVP to the event by emailing
