The Guerilla Gourmet and his team of epicurean bandits…

March 17, 2011

Chef Payton Curry, the Guerilla Gourmet, and his team are taking over at the Old Town Scottsdale Market.  For the lucky ones that got to visit his booth this past Saturday, you will be pleased to know that they are coming back and will be located right across from us.  I came too late last Saturday and missed out on the fresh-pulled mozzarella, but I did catch up with the Curry Crew at Devoured on Sunday.

For one tiny plate, Payton created magic.  His booth earned a Gold Medal from Howard Seftel for his Pork Banh Mi sliders, a pate made from high-end breeds Berkshire and Mangalitsa, and a vegan rutabaga and potato vichyssoise topped with bee pollen.  Just looking at the picture makes me want to eat this exact meal again.  And again.

Can’t wait for Saturday!  I understand that they will be serving fresh-pulled mozzarella, McClendon Select jardiniere, Campari Tomato Bolognese, and Tender Belly Farms slow-roasted pork with Braised Tuscan Kale sugo and pate.  Mercy!  I will have to get there earlier this time.  And just so you aren’t worried, Chef Curry will still be working with us to answer questions for our customers and to lend his expertise for any recipes or advice you may need.

P.S.  If you want a literary treat too, Payton also has a way with words.  You can find him at or on twitter @paytoncurry!  And for that matter, you can find us now on Facebook too!!
