GUT! Snout-to-Tail #2: 32 Degrees Latitude, another pop-up collab.

The second of three snout-to-tail Tucson summer pop-up dinners is Sunday, July 30th at the Carriage House. While the menu for the previous event focused on things happening in Tucson now, this second foray traverses laterally and globally, looking East along the 32nd parallel upon which Tucson proudly sits. Japan, India, China, and both the Southern and Southwestern United States feature in this menu, with nearly every external dish harboring a Tucson callback as a nod to our love for and commitment to collaboration and exchange.

The Gastronomic Union of Tucson (GUT) is a collaborative endeavor of some of Tucson’s best-loved and most-acclaimed chefs and food professionals.  Embracing the spirit of creative exchange that has garnered Tucson’s UNESCO designation as a World City of Gastronomy, the chefs of GUT are offering a 5 course menu with hors d’oeuvre and wine for $75.  The Carriage House, located at 125 S. Arizona Avenue in downtown Tucson will host the event. Hors d’oeuvre will begin at 6 pm, and dinner will start at 6:30. Seating will be limited. Purchase tickets here.
