After Katsuya’s Pop Up, I watched the last few minutes of Jordan Khan decorating a tree limb with food elements on the main stage while being accompanied by a five string ensemble.  Very bizarre and yet totally mesmerizing.  Continue reading


IACP Conference coming April 1-4

Just a quick shout out to all the Colorado Foodies that read this blog.  IACP (International Association of Culinary Professionals) is holding their next conference here in Denver this coming April 1-4 (no fooling).

I am co-coordinator for the Master Class series being offered at the site,  at Cook Street and also Johnson & Wales.  If any of you are interested in volunteering to help assist and set up classes then I would be happy to discuss this opportunity with you.  This should be a great networking opportunity for you.

We have some important food players coming to visit.  Andoni Aduriz,  Michael Nischan,  Dan Barber, Rick Moonen, Peter Reinhart, Mario Batali and his father etc.  I would love to show IACP and their guest that we can go toe to toe with any large market when it comes to great food.  Hell many of us worked in those markets and chose Colorado because it is one of the best places on earth to be.

Contact me at if you have an interest in helping out.
