Find out what all the slow-food fuss is about at tonights Rocky Mountain Bushels and Bottles event. The whole idea here is to feature and showcase local producers, so we are developing a seasonal menu based on donations from these producers, explains Bravdica. That menu will include such delicacies as cauliflower gratin with creamy bechamel sauce; classic beef bourguignon with sweet roasted garlic pommes purée; a fresh green bean salad with beets and radishes and orange champagne vinaigrette; lamb bracciole on a bed of pasta; smoked chicken-and-apple sausage with braised chard; and a sweet apple jalousie with chantilly cream for dessert. Mmm. All foods will be paired with wine and beer.
Admission to this gourmands dream is $65, with proceeds benefiting Slow Food Denver. Start munching at 6 p.m. at Cook Street School of Fine Cooking, 1937 Market Street; call 303-308-9300 for information.
