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

Roland Mesnier, a French-American pastry chef, spent a quarter of a century in the White House, baking cakes and tarts for everyone from the Queen of England to Chelsea Clinton. He got the presidential gig on the basis of his work with low-calorie, fruit-based desserts.

Although Mesnier is now retired, he teaches cooking classes and has written several books on baking and his former stint as chef to the first families.

He'll talk about his career at 10 a.m. tomorrow, January 28, at the Bethany Lutheran Church, 4500 East Hampden Avenue in Cherry Hills Village. Tickets are $30 at the door. For more information, call Gean Hodges at 303-698-0230.

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.
