What's Cooking?

World AIDS Day isn't until December 1, but tonight three chefs will offer plenty of food for thought at Cook-Off for a Cause, a benefit for the Women's Lighthouse Project, which helps people living with AIDS/HIV. Jamie Fader of Lola, Sheila Lucero of Jax and Goose Sorensen of Solera will be paired with three celebrity sous chefs (pity poor Fader, who'll be attempting to work with me) for an evening of cooking contests, both a silent and live auction (Representative Andrew Romanoff does the honors), and stories from WLP clients. Host Molly Hughes gets things cooking at 6 p.m. at Mise En Place, 1801 Wynkoop Street; tickets are $60, $100 for VIPs. For information, go to www.womenslighthouseproject.org or call 303-344-1878.
