Our favorite Arizona wine geek, Sam Pillsbury is no longer our hidden source for entertainment and great wine. The Sundance Channel tapped him as a “Tastemaker” ambassador for Phoenix. Watch the clip where he shares his passion for wine, art and favorite places to eat… including Quiessence! Thanks Sam!

“Valley chef Greg LaPrad, executive chef at the Quiessence Restaurant at the Farm at South Mountain, has been selected to prepare a dinner for a selection of international culinary luminaries at the prestigious James Beard House in New York City on July 7.
LaPrad was nominated after a James Beard Foundation board member ate at Quiessence in 2009.
In June, Quiessence will serve preview dinners based on the menu developed for the James Beard House.”
Thanks to Andrea Robinson and the morning crew at Fox 10 Arizona for highlighting Quiessence Restaurant at The Farm at South Mountain in their February edition of “Taste of the Town.” After a quick tour of the Farm property, she joined Tony in the kitchen to roll fresh pasta which turned into a quick midweek dish for viewers.
After a visit to the Valley, The Travel Channel featured Quiessence Restaurant on the list of “Top 5 in Phoenix.” The producer planned to spend one hour at The Farm, but immediately rescheduled her afternoon to enjoy an entire day with us.
A big thank you to Travel Channel filmmaker Allison who called Quiessence “Amazing seasonal organic cuisine.” Watch the video here.
