Today’s flavorful side deal peppers your palate with dazzling gold medalry. For $100, you’ll get tickets for two to the Taste of Elegance Chef’s Food & Wine Competition on Thursday, November 12, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., part of Denver’s International Wine Festival.
Top Chef season five winner Hosea Rosenberg, senior editor of 5280 magazine Amanda M. Faison, and food critic and author Claire Walter serve as judges at this Iron Chef–inspired event. Sixteen of the region’s star chefs will create perfect pairings for assigned pours (two gold-medal wines, one white and one red, and a Belgium beer) in an attempt to be crowned Best, Most Creative, or People’s Choice.
This is your chance to sip and sample innovative dishes and award-winning bottles. On event day, chefs will prep bite-size portions of their inventive plates served alongside samples of their liquid muses, which should taste better since it's been flavored by the smoky fire of competition. You’ll also take home a souvenir logo wine glass and can participate in auctions to benefit the Help America Hear Program.

Too Many X Spoils the Y
Everyone knows Too Many Cooks Spoil The Pot™, but few people know that the popular phrase is actually trademarked by one Tom Scanlon of Virginia Beach. Before Tom hit upon his astounding aphorism, he went through some first drafts that were quite different. Here are some of his earlier attempts:
- Too many bats spoil the marathon
- Too many terrifying visions spoil the anniversary party
- Too many ants spoil Tom’s Labor Day barbecue before he can spoil it himself by screaming at the charcoal
- Too many lawsuits spoil Tom’s chances of becoming County Supervisor
- Too many photographs of Susan spoil the ability of Tom to forget about Susan
