Last night, EatDenver, a local network of independent restaurants and 9Health Fair teamed up to host a Saucey Affair, a judged small plates and sauce showdown, the proceeds of which benefited 9Health Fair, Colorado's largest volunteer-driven healthcare program offering free and low-cost health screenings to more than 100,000 people each year.

And, of course, we were there with our point-and-shoot, the snaps of which we've amassed into a food and chef porn pictorial, which you can view on the pages ahead.
