Bistro Vendôme's Matt Anderson dishes on WHIRL, EVOO, brains and Bourdain

Matt Anderson Bistro Vendôme 1420 Larimer Street 303-825-3232

Matt Anderson wanted to become an Olympic downhill skier from the time he was three and wobbled on skis for the first time. But eighteen years later, he threw his skis in the trash. Anderson, once a member of the U.S. Alpine Ski Team, gave it up in 1991. "I crashed mentally," he says. "There was too much travel, I had too many injuries, and all of that combined just started to add up - and I walked away."
