Nirvana Food & Wine Festival

By: The Food Hunter

This past weekend Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain hosted the inaugural food and beverage extravaganza Nirvana. The 4 day event showcased the talents of premier chefs and winemakers from around the globe.

I was fortunate to attend the Best of the West event held on Saturday evening. Delicacies prepared by Valley chefs were available for tasting, along wine and high-end spirits. The evening also featured live music and an appearance from celebrity chef Scott Conant.

A portion of the proceeds from this sold-out culinary festival will be donated to HopeKids – an organization dedicated to restoring hope and transforming the lives of children with life-­threatening medical conditions, their families and the communities in which they serve.

Didn't make it to this year's event...that's OK Nirvana, destined to be an annual occurrence, will be back next year!

This experience was provided complimentary, all opinions are my own. 


  1. This is by far one of the best places to hang with friends, have great drinks (amazing beer selection), eat some great food, including the great lunch I had there. Prices at LA venues are very reasonable and the pizza was awesome.

  2. Wow this is such a creative recipe! Beautiful pictures by the way! :)
