The Culinary Stage at This Year's Festival of Books

Posted By on Mon, Feb 27, 2012 at 11:21 AM

Amazing things happen on the culinary stage at the annual Tucson Festival of Books. Last year Janos Wilder gave a speech that led to a change in local food policy that allowed restaurants to legally use produce from backyard gardeners. Who knows what could happen this year?

This year's line up looks promising: Ryan Clark from Lodge on the Desert, Doug Levy of Feast, Ethan Schulz of Fleming's Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar, Massimo Tenino of Tavolino Ristorante Italiano, Wilder and others. There's a ton of demonstrations and other culinary-related readings as well, and it sounds like there will be some pretty decent eats, too.

The event takes place this Saturday and Sunday on the UA Mall. There's more on the festival over here. If you go to the events page and search the culinary category you can find a quick guide to all the food-related stuff.
