Show Banquet for ARIPEX 2023


This style of food is the result of the melting pot that was the Habsburg Empire, with Czech, Hungarian, Croatian, Romanian, Polish, and more influences.  This plated three course meal is being specially prepared at the Mesa Convention Center by Chef Lou Bauman and his talented crew.
