Crested Butte Land and Trust Food and Wine Festival uncorks today
The first day of the four-day Crested Butte Land Trust Food and Wine Festival uncorks today. And unlike some local food and wine festivals where our homegrown chefs are snubbed, the Crested Butte powwow, which includes wine seminars, wine walks, chef dinners, grand tastings and gourmet picnics, parades four of Denver's top culinary chiefs: Keegan Gerhard (D Bar Desserts); Troy Guard (TAG); Tyler Wiard (Elway's Cherry Creek); and Frank Bonanno (Mizuna, Luca D'Italia, Osteria Marco and Bones). Individual event tickets can be purchased at www.crestedbuttewine.com or by calling 303-809-0404.
Closer to home, Opus, Michael Long's Littleton restaurant at 2575 West Main Street, is hosting a "movie interpretation" wine pairing dinner at 6:30 p.m. The multi-course meal, a collection of film-inspired dishes from Ratatouille, Fried Green Tomatoes, Forrest Gump, Blues Brothers, Goodfellas and The Wizard of Oz -- is $79 per person, exclusive of tax and gratuity. Reservations are recommended; call 303-703-6787 to get a front row seat.
