2024 Primavera Cooks!

About Primavera Cooks!

For the past 22 years, Cooks! has raised funds for vital programs, aiding over 8,000 community members annually with emergency services. This year, Cooks! is focused on building a women and family shelter, addressing the critical shortage of beds for unhoused women and families in Pima County. Your support will help make that a reality!

Information for diners and apprentices is included below, in addition to details regarding our two new experiences for this year’s Primavera Cooks! series: Cooks! Cocktails and Chef Janos Wilder Culinary Experience.

Be a Diner

As a diner, you will have the opportunity to enjoy a multi-course, wine-paired, gourmet dinner in some of Tucson’s finest restaurants.

In addition to our classic dining events, we have two new experiences: Cooks! Cocktails and Chef Janos Wilder Culinary ExperienceCheck out the below sections to learn more about each of these new experiences. 

Ticket Prices: 

Cooks! Cocktails: $50.00

Traditional Dining Events: $150.00

Chef Janos Wilder Culinary Experience: $500.00

The cost of each diner ticket includes tax and gratuity and 50% of this donation is tax-deductible. 

Be an Apprentice

As an apprentice chef, you will work alongside some of Tucson’s finest chefs to create wine-paired dinners in professional restaurant kitchens. Apprentice chefs meet in advance with the restaurant chef to create, plan, and prep the menu for their dinner. 

On the day of the dinner, they work with the restaurant staff to prepare, plate, and send out all courses to a dining room full of friends and guests. Each apprentice chef is responsible for inviting five guests to the dinner to share in this culinary adventure.

As an apprentice, please make sure to purchase your Apprentice ticket ($250.00) and then either purchase the five diner tickets and distribute them to your guests or coordinate with your guests to make sure they purchase diner tickets while they are still available. 

Purchase Diner and Apprentice Tickets

If you have any questions regarding diner or apprentice tickets, please contact Communications and Events Specialist, Trevor Williamson, via email at twilliamson@primavera.org

Note: Following our dinner at Feast, we will no longer be processing refunds for diner or apprentice tickets. We will instead be treating the purchase amount as a fully-deductible donation.
