The culinary event of the year is finally here, which means this weekend dozens of the Valley's best chefs will gather at the Phoenix Art Museum for the annual Devoured Culinary Classic. Catch restaurants including Clever Koi, FnB, Roka Akor, and Crudo for a day of food and drink tastings from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on both days. We're particularly looking forward to a preview of the menu for the soon to open Pink Pony in Scottsdale and a taste of something new from Nocawich in Phoenix. The event will take place rain or shine, so if you're heading out Saturday don't forget your umbrella. For more information check the Devoured website.
