As part of the three-day Denver International Wine Festival, the Pairsine Chefs Fine Food and Wine Competition set up tasting tables at the Westin Hotel DIA last night. Ten Colorado chefs prepared two dishes each to match with award-winning wines. This was a judged event, so the chefs brought their A-game, and ticket holders were also able to vote for the People's Choice award. This year's winners were executive chef Kyle Viera of the Oceanaire Seafood Room for the People’s Choice Award; chef de cuisine Jonathan Kaiser of Fruition for the Judges' Choice Best Chef; and Scott Snodell, executive chef of the hotel's Grill & Vine restaurant for Judges' Choice Most Creative Chef.
