The clan from Vesta Dipping Grill and Steubens are renowned for their generosity, hosting shindigs throughout the year to benefit local nonprofits. But Plates for the Peak is their baby an event, says executive chef Matt Selby, that was created by us for an organization that we really believe in, an organization committed to helping youth at risk.
Now in its seventh year, the small-plates soiree and silent auction, which kicks off at 6 p.m. at Vesta, 1822 Blake Street, trumpets the talents of numerous all-star guest chefs Brian Laird (Barolo Grill); Keegan Gerhard (D Bar Desserts); Tyler Wiard (Elways Cherry Creek); Sheila Lucero (Jax Denver and Boulder); Brendon Doyle (Jonesys); Jamey Fader (Lola); Brandon Biederman (Steubens); Troy Guard (TAG); James Rugile (Venue); and Wade Kirwin, Curtis Caldwell, Brandon Foster and Kenny Turk, all stove sergeants from Vesta. I cant say enough about all the participating chefs just that its very special to me when theyre all here under the Vesta roof giving their talent and heart to this cause, says Selby.
