Culinary calendar: Penny Parker's Decadent Delights, a giant potato and grappa!

Penny Parker may have lost her job at the Denver Post, but she hasn't lost her interest in a charity that helps breast-cancer patients -- a charity that will benefit from a fundraiser at Coohills this Tuesday.

Here's a taste of what else is on the culinary calendar this week:
