Old Town Scottsdale and Chef Cullen Campbell…

October 24, 2014


McClendon’s Select is excited to return to the Old Town Farmer’s Market in Scottsdale tomorrow, Saturday, October 25th.  We will have Chef Cullen Campbell from Crudo joining us at the market from 9:00am to noon taking your questions and sharing recipes.  Sean and I had a chance to eat at Crudo recently, and it was an experience to behold.  I wrote a little about Chef Campbell and the many, many awards that have come his way, and about the concept of Crudo here, but getting to actually dine at his restaurant and experience the menu really spoke to his talent.  The menu changes throughout the seasons, but Chef Campbell keeps a few favorites on throughout the year.  There are four elements to the menu – crudo (raw), cotto (cooked), mozza (mozzarella), and griglia (grilled).  You choose your own courses or order dishes individually.  It was hard to pick, but we ended up sharing a little bit of everything which seemed the best way to go.

Here is a little peek of some of the dishes ordered…


 Yellowtail – Controne, Bottarga, Chive


Burrata – Pancetta Vin, Arugula


Semolina Gnocchi – Pork Jowl, Truffle, Fonduta


Chocolate Olive Oil Cake

The Chocolate Olive Oil cake is a Tracy Dempsey creation served with little sides of sea salt, chocolate sprinkles and Dulce de Latte Mascarpone, which is only makes a good thing better.  We hope that you get a chance to talk with Chef Cullen at the market this Saturday.  As evident in his dishes, he has a lot of expertise to share.  See you tomorrow at the market!
