Trash Fish Dinner Tucson

Date: Sunday - October 19, 2014

Time: 5:00 PM



Three local award-winning chefs Ramiro Scavo of Pasco, Ryan Clark of Agustin, and Ken Harvey of Loews  Ventana Canyon Resorts team up to create a delicious multi-course dinner featuring lesser known and underutilized fish such as Asian Carp and Porgy. This innovative dinning experience features a DJ  & live music, a cocktail reception with passed hors d'oeuvres, live cooking & mixology stations, and a dessert bar at the gorgeous Ventana Canyon Flying V Bar & Grill for $100 per person with just 100 seats available.


Increased awareness  of the importance of consuming sustainable seafood caught by local fisherman who catch fish in a sensible manner, is gaining momentum. Previously deamed as "trash fish", such wild caught, healthy, and delicious fish are being utilized by chefs across the country for traditional mainstream dishes. 


For reservations call 520.615.5495 or visit


Proceeds from Trash Fish dinner will benefit Slow Food Southern Arizona, a local nonprofit focused on providing C-CAP culinary student scholarships.
