Sponsored by the University of Arizona FORGE, the Tucson City of Gastronomy presents a monthly presentation, every second Thursday, on the business of heritage foods. TCoG speakers will provide information on how to leverage Tucson's global designation as part of the UNESCO Creative Cities Network to grow food-based businesses in Southern Arizona.

Each event features a food producer discussing the journey of producing local foods for market. During the presentation, the producer will be paired with a local Gastronomic Union of Tucson chef who will give a demonstration and prepare a dish utilizing local foods from the producer.

This month's event features Barbara Eiswerth, executive director and founder of Iskashitaa, and Chef Devon Sanner, TCOG Chef Ambassador, co-founder of Gastronomic Union of Tucson, award-winning chef and co-owner of the Zio Peppe restaurant.
