An International Chef Collaboration Celebrating the Cuisine and Cultures of the Arizona-Sonora Borderlands

Honorary hosts Vice Mayor Laura Pastor and Consul General of Mexico Claudia Franco Hijuelos

CALA Alliance is proud to present its annual culinary event Sabor, celebrating the distinct and diverse cuisines of the Americas on Monday, November 13, 2017 at 6:00 p.m. at The Van Buren in downtown Phoenix. Since 2012, Sabor has featured top-rated chefs from around the Valley who have prepared dining experiences inspired by the rich cuisines of Latin America.

This year, CALA Alliance is pleased to host an international chef collaboration in celebration of the cuisine and cultures of the Arizona-Sonora borderlands. At the event, Arizona chef Samantha Sanz from Talavera Restaurant at the Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale and Sonora chef Eloy Aluri, director of Festival del Chef Sonora, will create a one-night only menu.

Sabor proceeds benefit CALA Alliance and its mission to create shared arts experiences that encourage cultural understanding between people of the Americas. A Phoenix nonprofit, CALA Alliance is dedicated to inspiring and educating Arizonans and the international community about the richness and depth of artistic talent in our local community, and to creating new understandings through art about Arizona’s connection to the Americas.

We sincerely appreciate your support of CALA Alliance’s mission of building a more inclusive, dynamic and equitable cultural life in Phoenix.
