A Surprising Delight in Jerome

Judy named his Arizona spin on a Screwdriver (with Prickly Pear and mango purees) the Double Whammy, while my modified Whisky Sour was refreshing and fantastic.  And the food? To die for.

Chillin’ in the Desert

We relaxed, sipped, savored and chatted. Before we knew it, we’d spent almost three hours chillin in the desert.

The outdoor market is a MUST! It’s the perfect place to snag a unique souvenir or some fresh-off-the-tree (or vine) snacks or even a low-cost picnic-style dinner in your hotel room with your feet up.

A Simple Meal

Judy and I marveled at how we continually bring our travels to our table, re-living the tastes and memories of places we’ve been both near and far.

Fresh Olive Oil in Arizona

David poured samples of olive oil into little cups and passed them around, the scent of the fresh EVOO transported me back to Italy as I inhaled it before sipping the golden-colored liquid.

A Sweet Local Find

When the Cerreta signature French mint truffles are being made, the entire building smells of spearmint and chocolate.
