( — November 21, 2013) Phoenix, Arizona — Patrons of Phoenix Metro Area farmers markets will now be able to sample culinary delights from renowned French Chef, Jean Ekobo.

It’s now possible to have a little bit of Paris without ever leaving Arizona! Well, you do have to come out to the farmers market, but now you can enjoy delicious French cuisine without leaving the state.


Once the personal chef for the legendary Muhammad Ali, Lenotre Culinary School trained Chef Jean Ekobo will delight your taste buds with both elegant dishes and comfort food.
