Chefs for the Cause sounded like a philanthropic foodie's delight -- six of Denver's top chefs creating delicious food to help raise money for the Denver affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. James Mazzio (of Cucina Colore and Via fame, now executive chef of Le Chateau), Justin Cucci (Root Down), Jeromy Krug (Ling & Louie's Asian Bistro), Sergio Romero (Argyll Gastropub), Bill Osoolund (Boulder Chophouse & Tavern) and Michael Bortz (City Bakery) were scheduled to help out at the November 12 event, co-hosted by the Gabby Gourmet and Roth Distributing ... but it's no longer happening; they're just going to have to cook it up to fight breast cancer some other time.
