Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

As part of the three-day Denver International Wine Festival, the Pairsine Chefs Fine Food and Wine Competition set up tasting tables at the Westin Hotel DIA last night. Ten Colorado chefs prepared two dishes each to match with award-winning wines. This was a judged event, so the chefs brought their A-game, and ticket holders were also able to vote for the People's Choice award. This year's winners were executive chef Kyle Viera of the Oceanaire Seafood Room for the People’s Choice Award; chef de cuisine Jonathan Kaiser of Fruition for the Judges' Choice Best Chef; and Scott Snodell, executive chef of the hotel's Grill & Vine restaurant for Judges' Choice Most Creative Chef.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. 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. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
