If you’ve ever eaten at any four Chef Lisa Dahl restaurants in Sedona, you’ve noticed she often forgoes the chef’s coat for high-fashion couture as she breezes from table-to-table greeting guests and bustles in-and-out of her kitchen preparing her award-winning cuisine.
Like her passion for great food and fine wine, fashion has always inspired her culinary career.
For the first time in Arizona, Chef Dahl is bringing Salvatore Ferragamo (namesake and grandson of the venerable fashion house) to Sedona for a rare and exclusive winemaker dinner on Oct. 20 at 6 pm.
Coming all the way from Tuscany to Sedona, Ferragamo is CEO of the Ferragamo family’s agro-leisure business which includes Il Borro Wines.
Paired with five courses from Chef Dahl, Ferragamo himself will take guests on the incredible journey of his family’s wine legacy. A place of rolling hills and lush farms rising to the Apennines, the Ferragamo family winery is located within a village name Il Borro where the wines are made with a passionate respect for nature and embrace the essence of the surrounding verdant territory, giving each wine its own distinctive character.
Limited seats are available and a quick sell-out is expected. The dinner will be held at Chef Dahl’s newest fine-dining restaurant, Mariposa Latin-Inspired Grill, which is nestled on a scenic bluff overlooking panoramic views of Sedona’s red rocks.
