We don’t host many wine dinners at Rancho Pinot but we’re trying to change that! Not
one, but TWO Italian winemakers at this dinner! Fernando Pighin & Figli – from Friuli –
and Tenute Silvio Nardi – from Montalcino. Chrysa’s family on her mother’s side are
from the Friuli region so this dinner has special meaning!
Attending will be Roberto Pighin, representing his family’s estate in Friuli and Emilia
Nardi will share her history as one of the few female leaders in Brunello.
Please give us a call 480-367-8030 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve

Chef KEVIN BINKLEY and Chef CHRYSA ROBERTSON
You definitely do NOT want to miss this dinner!
Long-time friends Kevin (Binkley’s, Bink’s Scottsdale & Midtown, Café Bink) and Chrysa have a running joke about “tweezers” versus tongs…as in, which implement is acceptable in a professional kitchen. Their cooking styles are quite different: his is more elaborate & precise – hence, the tweezers (hemostats) used for plating – and hers is more natural & rustic – tongs for the grill!
So, in the spirit of friendly competition, the chefs have put together a dinner to show who’s “right”!
Chefs Chrysa and Kevin have chosen several seasonal ingredients and they each will prepare a different dish using the same ingredient for each course.

Welcome to our new and improved website! It’s been a long time coming, but better late than never. I hope to spend more time writing about what’s happening at Rancho…things I’m excited about, upcoming events, seasonal garden notes, and probably some irreverent rantings! The restaurant biz is always filled with interesting happenings, so check back often to see what I have to say. All of us here at Rancho truly appreciate and value your support over these past 21+ years! Thanks for being part of our “family”!
