Arrive early. Quite a few of the booths started running out of samples around 3pm, but there were a lot of delicious foods to sample and great info from lots of local places.

This was a really fun event, we enjoyed sampling food, watching a baking demonstration and buying some things to add to our kitchen at home. Probably would have been worth the full price of admission, but with the Groupon deal it was definitely a cheap way to have fun on a Summer afternoon! I'd say that the only drawback would be that the Westin La Paloma didn't seem to have enough parking to really accommodate the event.

What You'll Get

Culinary exhibitions are named not for the cooking and product demonstrations they host, but for their food exhibitionists, namely the shamelessly undressed salads. Squash veggie inhibitions with today's Groupon: for $20, you get two tickets to The Culinary Experience at Loews Ventana Canyon (a $40 value). The Groupon is valid for one day and may be used Saturday, June 25, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. or Sunday, June 26, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The Culinary Experience, an interactive and informative food expo, teaches cooking techniques, unveils innovative kitchen equipment, and encourages guests to get involved in food-related activities. The expo's exhibitors introduce guests to kitchen-remodeling options, dinner-party-planning essentials, current trends in casual and fine dining, and ways to discreetly pick leafy greens from teeth on a first date. On three kitchen stages, local chefs demonstrate the preparation of menu items from their restaurants. During 30-minute classes of 25 guests, local chefs share culinary secrets in an interactive, intimate setting. Throughout the exhibition, guests may indulge in food samples, testing their newfound ability to consume up to six hummus-spread gourmet crackers at once.

This deal is not valid for the Iron Chef Tuscon competition, held on Sunday June 26 at 5:30 p.m.
