Janos Wilder Brings the World to Tucson

The other day I wrote about Chef Janos Wilder traveling to Paris as part of the UNESCO City of Gastronomy designation.

Well, if you can’t make it to Paris, don’t worry, you can still enjoy the great food and a little bit of glamor.

As he has for the past several summers, Janos and his team will be taking Tucsonans on the Around the Globe Culinary tour that includes classes and pop-up dinners at Carriage House and a series of menus at DOWNTOWN Kitchen + Cocktails.

The cities on this year’s tour are sister Cities of Gastronomy and are an excellent mix of flavors and tastes.

Classes will be held at The Carriage House and allow guests the opportunity to learn about the culinary history of the cities and enjoy a full dinner featuring a variety of dishes offered on the tour. . Cost is $80 per person plus tax and gratuity for a five-course dinner.
