Host Farmers: Doug & Penny McCollum, The Farm at Agritopia, Gilbert, AZ (Phoenix)
Guest Chef: Chris Curtiss, Fox Restaurant Concepts, Scottsdale, AZ 


Agritopia really is something of a utopia for agriculture. Certainly our table location in the peach grove lends itself to such a description. Three generations of Johnstons have farmed here, and when the development pressures of a growing city came along, the family sought to create a place that mixes the best of the city and the farm. Among other things, that means we have a really cool coffee shop just steps away from farm fields. Farmers Doug and Penny have been farming here and in Yuma county for 30 years with a special emphasis in dates and orchard crops. You will find them quite charming. The Farm at Agritopia continues forward! Chef Chris Curtiss joined us for a seafood feast at the Secret Sea Cove last season when he was at Bourbon Steak Santa Clara. Now he’s at Bourbon Steak Scottsdale, and he’ll prepare a feast from the desert harvest.
