Makin' Bacon

Tyler Wiard, chef at Elway's at 3000 East First Avenue, is bringing home the bacon after taking down all comers at the Taste of Elegance -- a national pig cookin' competition organized by the National Pork Board out in California. Wiard bested twenty other chefs from around the country, and did so by keeping it local, doing his cumin-roasted pork loin and braised pork shoulder with green chile, posole cake, smooth avocado and red chile.

And after Monday's competition, the victorious Wiard came home with a nice, fat five-thousand-dollar check and two cruise tickets. Not bad for an afternoon's work, huh?

And good news: Elway's is considering adding Wiard's pork dish to the menu. -- Jason Sheehan
