Beginning April 7, Tucson Originals will offer hands-on cooking classes every other Tuesday taught by some of Tucson’s best chefs.

Classes will be held from 6-8 p.m. (they culminate in dinner with the chef) at Tucson Wholesale Supply, 4229 E. Speedway Blvd.

Space is limited to 10 participants. Cost for the series of five classes is $750 per person, which includes recipes for the series, notebook, dinner and beverages at each session. Classes are sold as a package, but you are welcome to divide classes with a friend if you can’t attend all five.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
