Project Angel Heart, the Denver nonprofit that prepares and delivers more than 400,000 nutritious meals each year to people coping with life-threatening illnesses, joined forces with several chefs last night for A Taste for Life, a gustatory grazeathon that raised funds to support the programs of Project Angel Heart.

The culinary powwow, which took place at the Exdo Event Center, pumped out plenty of tastes, including sweetbreads, chicken and waffles, Thai curried shrimp wrapped in steamed banana leaves and key lime pie, from several local restaurants, cafes, caterers and dessert dens.

Herewith, a food porn pictorial.
