Digest: Arizona Food Media Round-Up

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Beginning in the next few days, we are adding this new, Arizona Media Digest to the Southwest & Western States forum. It will be compiled by newly-appointed Specialist, Eliot Wexler (aka molto e), whose knowledge and experience will continue to be a valuable resource to us all.

As with the other digests which appear on our site, we're setting up this thread as a consolidation point for various, food-related stories of interest which appear in both the local Phoenix and Tucson area media. We plan to update this thread weekly, although some of the resources which will be digested here, won't renew that frequently.

As the thread continues, please let us know if there are any worthy local media sources which we have neglected to include.

Thanks,

=R=
