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.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
