Arizona Foodie Pop-Up Demo Featuring Chef Cory Oppold and Chef Juan Zamora from Atlas Bistro is coming up on April 17th. The Chefs will be whipping up the most spectacular Sunday Brunch for you, creativity will be pouring out like the Orange Creamsicle Mimosas and Agua Frescas we hear they might be serving. After a decadant amuse bouche, they’ll be serving up three courses.
Chef Cory Oppold has been at Atlas Bistro for over a year. He use to work at Binkley’s Restaurant and Tarbell’s. Chef Oppold met Chef Juan Zamora when Zamora was a student at Le Cordon Bleu. Chef Zamora did a brief stint at Cafe Bink and then joined Chef Oppold at Tarbell’s and together they moved to Atlas Bistro when the time was right. Together they have been working and creating visually beautiful dishes and also pallate pleasers.
Atlas b.y.o.b. is an award winning dining destination. Their BYOB policy allows guests to bring their finest wines to pair with the best tasting food in Arizona. Organic, hand foraged, local, wild, line caught, sustainable and exotic are just some of terms you will find on the menu that the chefs revise daily.
What to expect at one of Arizona Foodie’s pop-ups?
This is a unique dining experience not offerend anywhere else. It’s for only 20 guests and hosted at a secret location sent only to ticket paying guests. You’ll receive the menu and the location a few days before the event, so be sure to check your email. When you arrive at the location, you’ll be greeted by Diana and the Chef and while we wait for everyone to arrive, you’ll enjoy appetizers and drinks. After mingling, we’ll be seated at the kitchen to watch the Chef begin his demo. As all the amazing smells fill your nostrils and tempt your belly, he’ll share his stories and his secrets on how to prepare food like a Chef. We encourage you to get up and help the Chef out with different tasks and stand next to him to see what he’s doing. This part of the event lasts about an hour to an hour and a half (it flies by!)
After the demo is finished and all your questions have been answered, we will move to the dining room to eat a coursed meal. Depending on what the Chef decides to prepare, it could be three or more courses and drinks to go along with. The last event sold out in the first day and there are only 20 spots available for the dinner. Tickets are $65 and are non-refundable. Food to be served after class will be prepared in a kitchen that is not regulated or inspected by the Arizona Department of Health Services or by the Maricopa County Environmental Services Department. Because of the nature of the event, we cannot accommodate allergies or other dietary restrictions, sorry!
