The Denver FIVE culinary stars will cook at the James Beard House on September 19

Last September, I spent a whopping 24 hours in New York City, mostly in the kitchen of the James Beard House, where the FIVE, a coterie of local chefs and cocktail kings, strutted their talents to a sold-old cognoscenti of foodniks -- one of whom claimed that it was the most fun she'd ever had at a Beard House dinner.

It's likely to be the same this year, when Leigh Sullivan's passel of kitchen magicians journey to the Big Apple, yet again, to showcase their culinary mastery.
