FLAVORS, a national culinary event, was first stirred together in 1991 by James Beard Award winning chef Christopher Gross in Phoenix. Chef Christopher and other area chefs were interested in supporting the mission of American Liver Foundation (ALF) and used their talents to support the Foundation’s mission. In 2024, ALF will host one national FLAVORS event in Phoenix, Arizona. Our former culinary masters have included local celebrity chefs, James Beard Award winners and even past winners of various Food Network shows. Since its inception more than two decades ago, FLAVORS has raised tens of millions of dollars, increased public awareness of liver disease nationwide and captured the hearts and support of thousands.


FLAVORS is a unique dining experience. While many organizations host small tasting events where multiple chefs prepare small dishes for everyone to sample, FLAVORS attendees are served a unique multi-course plated dinner, prepared by their chef tableside.
