Tickets go on sale today for the Denver Celebrity Chef Tour -- and the lineup is stellar

Tickets go on sale today for the Denver Celebrity Chef Tour, a star-studded squad of kitchen sorcerers, including Matt Selby (Vesta Dipping Grill and Steuben's); Alex Seidel (Fruition and Fruition Farms); Eric Skokan (Black Cat, Boulder); and Michael Ginor, the co-founder and chef of Hudson Valley Foie Gras, all of whom will gather in the kitchen of Osteria Marco, Frank Bonanno's restaurant at 1453 Larimer Street, on November 18 to cook a multi-course dinner paired with bubbles, wines, beers and/or cocktails.

"It's a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience what transpires at the James Beard House in a restaurant in your own home town," says Elizabeth Woessner, the national marketing consultant for the Celebrity Chef Tour Dinner Series. "The caliber of chefs who are participating in the Denver event are some of the best we have. The breadth and depth of their talent and experience is unparalleled."

The roving Celebrity Chef Tour dinners, which began in 2004, benefit the James Beard Foundation's programming and educational initiatives. Tickets to the Denver dinner are $150 per person ($130 if you've got a Visa Signature card) and can be purchased at
