Tucson Cooks!

Here's a delicious idea for what to get the foodies on your holiday shopping list. The book, Tucson Cooks!, benefits the Primavera Foundation and comprises stories, recipes and photographs from previous Primavera Cooks fundraising dinners and the Tucson Originals independent restaurants. With almost 100 recipes from roast duck with blackberries to macaroni and cheese, there's something for everyone. Books may be purchased for $24.95 from Feast, 4122 E. Speedway Blvd., 326-9363; and Pastiche Modern Eatery, 3025 N. Campbell Ave., 325-3333.

Montana Avenue

Fox Restaurant Concepts has added another restaurant to its thriving repertoire. Montana Avenue features regional American cooking from Arizona, California, Colorado and New Mexico. The brand-new, sleek space has exhibition kitchen seating, a glass-enclosed private dining room, two outdoor patios, a bar and dining room at 6390 E. Grant Road; 298-2020. Make a reservation online at www.foxrc.com.

15th Anniversary

In 1990, the 17th Street Market opened, selling seasonal fruits and vegetables plus a large selection of Asian products. The Asian part of the market came to fruition when Tucson Food Services acquired the wholesale division of G&L Imports from founder Paul Lim, who became an integral part of the market and helped with today's growth. Starting Dec. 5, holiday hours will be expanded weekdays from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at 840 E. 17th St.; 792-2588.

Dinner and a Movie for $10

Wednesday is fun with food and film at the Lookout Grille in the Westward Look Resort. Supper is served TV-dinner style and includes three chicken enchiladas, Spanish rice, beans, calabacitas (squash) and caramel flan. A different holiday-themed movie is aired weekly at 245 E. Ina Road; 917-2476.

Wanted: End of Year Festivities

Dec. 31 and Jan. 1 will soon be here, and Noshing wants to know what festivities restaurants have planned; all price ranges are welcomed for a special New Year's guide, scheduled for Dec. 22 publication. Please e-mail the info before Dec. 10; no PDFs, please.
