Arizona on a Plate Pop up Dinner
As part of a two-year photojournalism series by Edible Phoenix Magazine entitled “Arizona on a Plate,” El Panzon y Frida’s young Executive Chef, Paulina Martinez, paired up with Heather Szymura from Twisted Infusion Farms, a unique urban farm located in Glendale. The two met at Twisted Infusions for a personal tour by Szymura, exploring her 40-foot, 63° container farm filled with vibrant hydroponic produce thriving under red and green LED lights.
From this visit grew an instant friendship and a burst of inspiration for the pop-dinner menu, a follow up experience to the interview recently featured in the Fall issue of Edible Phoenix. The three-course dinner will highlight Twisted Infusions fresh and locally grown herbs and peppers, combined with Chef Martinez’ hearty New York Strip for the main entrée.
