I think I’ll just let the photos speak for themselves.
The Fairmont Scottsdale Princess is a luxury resort that has come to reflect the dynamic environment that surrounds it — where sun-washed stone and bright green cottonwoods rise up to meet the pale-blue sky and majestic purple mountains. But it tops my list for these reasons:  Michael Mina’s Bourbon Steak Restaurant and my absolute favorite amenity,  a copy of his cookbook in every suite! Now that’s my kind of bedtime story 🙂
A special thank you to Mandy, Rachel, Jana and Laura for an enchanted evening…
…cheers girls, YAY for Pink Champagne AND a good cause!

  1. You’re killing me here. The closest I’ve been to a Michael Mina restaurant is watching the opening of his Vegas restaurant on Food TV. How delicious do his creations look.

  2. Good LAWRD, woman! This is amazing!!! I know it can seem a bit over-done with all of the exclamations, but they are so well deserved. You are right, the photos do speak for themselves AND a cookbook to boot?!?! I would be in heaven. I have a great recipe for a carrot souffle, but I’m lov’n the punch of color with the spinach. Yum.

    I”m glad you had so much fun.

  3. I’d be thrilled with just the spinach souffle and passionfruit panna cotta. What a gorgeous feast!
