Chefs Kelly Whitaker (of Basta in Boulder) and Cody Taft rolled out their mobile kitchen and wood-burning oven, Ash, last Friday at the Infinite Monkey Theorem Urban Winery in the RiNo neighborhood — just in time for a heavy dose of rain. Tarps kept the food dry and fires safe, but turnout was slim. But Ash is back tonight at IMT from 5 to 11 p.m., and the weather is expected to cooperate, with clear skies and temperatures in the mid-’70s — perfect for a cookout and a few glasses of wine.
Pizzas, fresh-baked breads, chicken skewers and other wood-roasted treats from the big dome oven and a smaller hibachi blazing at 1,000 degrees with Japanese binchotan coals were on order last weekend; expect similar treats tonight. Here's what you missed last weekend while you were staying dry.
