Fine Dining and Culinary Education at Sanctuary Camelback Mountain in Phoenix

  • 08/13/15

Get a glimpse into some of the greatest culinary minds in the country at Sanctuary Camelback Resort and Spa this month.

The Scottsdale resort’s Lunch & Learn series, now in its 14th year, features guest chefs or other culinary experts discussing their trade—what inspires them, what motivates them, and what it’s like to work in some of the world’s finest restaurants. As they dish, you enjoy a three-course meal with paired wine.

Despite the series’ name, only about half of the events are lunches. Lunches begin at 12 p.m. and are $75 per person plus tax and gratuity. Dinners begin at 6 p.m. and are $125 plus tax and gratuity. To make a reservation for an upcoming lunch or dinner, call (855) 245-2051.

When you make your Lunch & Learn reservation, ask about the resort’s special room rate of $199 (excluding tax and resort fees). Since you are already there, you might as well make a night of it!

The series kicked off back in July but runs through August 29 with a final dinner event scheduled for October 16. Here’s the schedule of remaining events:
