For husbands who want to provide a unique experience for their wives, Ahwatukee Foothills' Chef with Benefits, Owen May, is hosting a couple's night on Saturday, May 7. Owen will help the men prepare the meal while the women receive a spa treatment from Dawn Rutledge and Cindy Wojtowicz.
"A lot of the time the man doesn't cook so when he does it's a special occasion," May said. "Women love a man who can be in the kitchen and experiment."
The menu includes mushrooms and garlic aioli, roasted beet salad with champagne vinaigrette and, for dessert, a trio of chocolate truffles.
The event will be at a private home in Ahwatukee Foothills and spaces are limited. If you are unable to make it to the event, there are gift certificates available as well. To find out more, call (480) 250-5867.
