The Food: Guadalajara-based Chef Carlos Espinosa from Tikuun Comedor Local created a one-night-only five-course menu inspired by the regional ingredients and culinary traditions of Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico. Creations in Cuisine Catering supported Chef Espinosa with execution of the evening. 

Notable Moments: Held outside in the courtyard of Phoenix Art Museum under a zig-zag of bistro lighting, the CALA Alliance once again presented an incredible culinary experience. The five courses presented by Chef Carlos Espinosa included aguachile with shrimp and scallop, braised short rib and a beautiful creamy chocolate and tangerine fruit tart.
