GUT! Snout-to-Tail Tucson #3: El Tour de Tastebuds

El Tour de Tastebuds. Sunday. August 27 @ 6 PM at The Carriage House.

A constellation of Tucson’s brightest culinary stars are proud to announce the third collaborative pop-up dinner of The Gastronomic Union of Tucson (GUT). While the first dinner in the series focused on flavors of Tucson and the second dinner took diners around the world for the cuisines of 32 degrees North latitude, our third dinner will be a sojourn for the palate. Each course in the five-course progressive will highlight a different taste sensation: salty, bitter, sour, umami, and sweet. This creative collaboration, inspired by Tucson’s recognition by UNESCO as a World City of Gastronomy, will take place at The Carriage House, 125 S. Arizona Avenue in downtown Tucson, on Sunday, August 27, 2017. The five course meal will include beverage pairings and will cost $75, inclusive. Hors d’oeuvre will begin at 6 pm. Seating will be limited, and tickets are available while they last at: Purchase tickets here.
