Chef Vincent Guerithault, owner of Vincent on Camelback in Phoenix has captured international acclaim for his creative approach to traditional French food. When given the opportunity to headline the menu for Phoenix Art Museum’s annual fundraising gala The pARTy, Vincent didn’t give it a second thought.

Vincent’s talents go well beyond his restaurant doors. He has created a very successful full-service catering business that can handle groups from five to 1,000.

“Vincent’s food is sumptuous with a timeless charm, which is one of the many reasons our committee selected him to headline the pARTy,” said pARTy Chair Diana Ellis Smith.

“It is my passion to make every dining experience memorable,” said Vincent Guerithault. “Combining culinary art amongst the ambiance of the Phoenix Art Museum’s vast collection is sure to be a dining experience of a lifetime.”

Vincent’s love for cooking began in his youth in France, where he worked at L’Oustau de Baumaniere in Les Baux de Provence, and Maxim’s and Fauchon in Paris. He came to the U.S. in 1976 to be sous–chef at Chicago’s Le Français, and within 10 years opened his own restaurant in the Valley, that helped put Phoenix on the culinary map.

The pARTy is one of the premier events in Phoenix for attracting guests from across the Valley and the United States.

Phoenix Art Museum will host its annual pARTy on Saturday, Nov. 3, which will be held downtown at the Phoenix Art Museum. The event promises to be an elegant evening centered on art and entertainment. Now in its seventh year, the pARTy has raised more than $9 million in support of the Museum’s education programs and exhibitions.

Tickets for the black-tie event are $750 per person and tables start at $7,500. To purchase tickets or to learn about sponsorships, contact Jan Nesburg at 602-257-2101.
