The “Arizona Seven” are reuniting for the “7 Chef Fund Up,” a dining event hosted in support of fellow chef Kelly Fletcher (formerly of House of Tricks and Zen Culinary).
Fletcher recently fell seriously ill to a life-threatening infection that spread through his body, rendering him bedridden in the ICU for weeks, and on home rest thereafter. His medical bills have skyrocketed, and without health insurance, he could fall into financial crisis.
The Arizona Seven will host a Multi-Course Dinner at Crudo, 3603 E. Indian School Road, at 6 p.m. on Monday, July 31. Cost is for $150++ per person, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to pay down Fletcher’s medical expenses. Even tastier, this one-night-only dinner will feature a menu penned by Fletcher, but with each of the chefs doing their own riff on his dishes. Chefs of the Arizona Seven include Keenan Bosworth (Pig & Pickle), Cullen Campbell (Crudo, Okra Cookhouse & Cocktails), Jacob Cutino (Homeboy’s Hot Sauce), Josh Hebert (Posh Improvisational Cuisine, Hot Noodles Cold Sake), Scott Holmes (Little Miss BBQ), Stephen Jones (The Larder + The Delta), Bernie Kantak (Citizen Public House, The Gladly) and Gio Osso (Nico, Virtù Honest Craft).
