Modern Tortilla Participating in the Devour Culinary Classic

“Food is not just fuel. Food is about family, food is about community, food is about identity. And we nourish all those things when we eat well.”
-Michael Pollan

There are some experiences in our lives that are so special, it’s hard to find the right words to express the significance of those moments. The impact of a meaningful conversation can’t be summed up. The flavors of a special meal prepared for you can’t be recreated. The lyrics of a monumental song can’t move you the same way nor can the paint on a canvas hit the light just so that it speaks the same words to your soul once again. Perhaps these moments can’t be perfectly recreated, but to have these moments at all is the most important thing.

11th Annual Devour Culinary Classic

This February, the annual Devour Culinary Classic has set the stage for all of your senses to be inspired. It is the region’s most anticipated culinary event because it does not just feed your body the best local foods prepared by the best local chefs, but it is sure to feed your soul as well. Every ticket holder will gain passage to the Desert Botanical Garden, where they can sample the best local restaurants. Live music and art will guide your experience through the garden as your taste buds sing. You’ll have access to Chef Demos as well as the Hensley/Quench Beverage Garden and Wine Sales Area. At the end of the day, you can take home your commemorative wine glass and yolk as you have the option to catch a discounted ride with Lyft.

Looking to make it even more special? Upgrade to the VIP Package and you’ll enjoy even more benefits, such as VIP 90-minute early admission, access to ALL tastings and experiences, as well as access to the 2020 Devour VIP Dorrance Hall Lounge featuring immersive experiences with special guests, celebrities, media and food judges. You’ll leave with your commemorative wine glass and yolk, as well as two return tickets to the Desert Botanical Garden. All while catching a discounted ride with Lyft Plus.

100% of the proceeds from Devour Culinary Classic will benefit the community efforts of: Local First Arizona, Desert Botanical Garden, and Southern Arizona Arts & Cultural Alliance (SAACA).

The Best Part

Modern Tortilla will participate in the Devour Culinary Classic on February 23. We specialize in tacos, burritos, and quesadillas, which means we’re behind the scenes creating a dish that will have you singing a Mexican love serenade you didn’t know you knew the words to. El amor de mi vida… In other words, look no further. You’ve found the love of your life.
