Troy Guard has again been selected to represent Denver in the annual Taste of the NFL, a charitable food and wine tasting that takes place Super Bowl weekend in New Orleans.
Guard -- who owns TAG, TAG|Raw Bar, and TAG Burger Bar, which Gretchen Kurtz just reviewed -- will join over thirty other chefs from around the country, each representing their city's NFL franchise.

Those lucky enough to be in the Big Easy for the big game will get to sample Guard's "Colorado Goat Enchilada with Guajillo Chile Sauce and Radish Salad paired with Mac Murray Ranch Pinot Noir."
Proceeds from the event will be distributed to a food bank from each participating city, including Denver's Food Bank of the Rockies. Visit the website for more information.
And watch Cafe Society for a rundown of local Super Bowl events later this week.
