A Taste of Culture | Autumn Scandinavia
Nov 21 @ 6:00 pm

Our Taste of Cultural Series dinners continue this fall and all of the events will focus on the bounty and flavors of autumn. It’s one of our favorite times of the year as the weather drops and cozy sweaters make their way to the front of the closet. Flavors of autumn are featured from the north provenience of Scandinavia.

Join Chef Kurtis Purdy of Tonto Bar & Grill as he dives knife and fork deep into these cultures. Each patron can be expected to enrich their knowledge and be tantalized with uniquely profound flavors of the presented cuisine. Partake in a taste of history by getting your tickets to this limited event. Only 24-seats available for each event and all of our past events sold out, so don’t hesitate or you’ll miss this incredible edible autumn event.
