Phoenix Feasting

Episode: CCETS-305H

Standing tall above the beautiful Arizona desert surrounding Phoenix is Camelback Mountain, and, at the base of it, sits Camelback Road and the heart of the Phoenix food scene. Chuck first visits the guru of innovative cooking when he samples chef Beau McMillan's Red Dragon shrimp with sesame rice, avocado, and kimchee mango prepared high up on the mountain at Elements, a luxurious restaurant surrounded by stunning vistas. Chuck gorges on the Sasquatch Burger that chef Aaron May turns out at The Lodge. It's a 10 oz beef burger sandwiched in between bacon and two grilled cheese sandwiches. Next, chef Mark Tarbell shows Chuck how to forage for local cactus, called nopales, from the back of an ATV for delicious vegetarian tacos at his restaurant, Tarbell's. Last, Chuck gets an unexpected treat at FuFu Cuisine, where chef Ester Mbaikambey specializes in hearty comfort food from her native Africa, including a goat stew called sombe and a starchy side called fufu which is made from yam flour. What a feast!
