Culinary Celebrities, Gurus, and Groupies Gather
to Taste Test Denver’s Best
Culinary celebrities, gurus, and groupies are heading to Denver this May for a chef and bartender competition like none other. The event, titled “Toques and ‘Tails,” will feature some of the best restaurants in Denver, each competing in a day of heated cooking and creative mixing. The top restaurants include Old Major, Corner House, TAG, The Corner Office, Central Bistro & Bar, Trillium, Le Grand Bistro & Oyster Bar, and Colt & Gray.
Ample servings of cocktails and food from each of the restaurants will accompany the competition, allowing each person to taste test the participating restaurants’ drink and cocktails for judging purposes, as well as personal pleasure, of course! In addition to getting the opportunity to taste test the dishes and drinks of Denver’s top chefs and bartenders, attendees will get the chance to mingle with culinary celebrities and gurus from Colorado and around the country who will be coming to Denver for the week in order to serve as ambassadors and judges for this inaugural event. Groupies (a.k.a. guests) will get the opportunity to eat and drink with these celebrities and gurus, catching a sneak peak of the behind the scenes culinary world in spots all across the nation.
As the first culinary competition of this kind in Denver, Denver foodies, and future groupies, won’t want to miss this event. To become a groupie, you may purchase tickets to Toques and ‘Tails here.
