This year, Rosewood Inn of the Anasazi is excited to announce their participation in the 2019 Wine & Chile Fiesta, the annual five-day culinary event featuring Santa Fe’s most highly regarded restaurants. Taking place this week, the fine-dining restaurant The Anasazi Restaurant, will be offering two five-course wine dinners and a four-course Guest Chef Luncheon as part of the festival.

Chef Peter O’Brien’s popularity has sold-out the three dining experiences, but lucky for our readers he is sharing one of the signature dishes created especially for this event, a Balsamic Pork Belly Jam with Roasted Oyster Mushrooms and Shaved Asparagus.
