What happens when you put naked pottery, glazes & brushes, drinks, and enchiladas in the same room? Gadzook’s is giving you the opportunity to find out this Friday night at Practical Art!
So who now, what now? Gadzooks Enchiladas & Soup is on the South East corner of 7th St & Osborn, and the name says it all. Their signature enchiladas– fiiled with savories like roasted tomatillo chicken, guajillo braised short ribs, and smashed jack potato– sizzle out of the oven in cazuela-style dishes. Cazuelas, popular in South America, are deep, oven-safe dishes used to cook foods that’re best simmered in their own juices– like these enchiladas!
Practical Art artisan Jillian Schimmel of Lafayette Avenue Ceramics has created dozens of these forms that she is bisque-firing and bringing to the event along with a selection of paints, glazes, and brushes so you can customize a cazuela of your very own*.
So for $20, with proceeds benefiting Phoenix Children’s Hospital, you get to decorate your very own cazuela-style dish and nom on the local fare you’d typically find in such a dish— that’s right, Gadzooks Enchiladas & Soup will be providing food! Sign up for yourself or for a group— the more the merrier!
