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

What are you doing tomorrow? If the answer to that question is "nothing" and you happen to love cooking challenge shows like I do, then you should check out tomorrow's taping of The Next Great Chef.

The show will be taped for the Food Network between 10 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Friday, May 2, at the Studios at Comcast Media Center, 4100 East Dry Creek Road in Centennial. The event will be emceed by Keegan Gerhard and will feature four chefs competing in two rounds -- appetizer and entrée -- to display their skills. The competitors are Sean Brock, Chris Cheung, Jonathan Leiva and Sue Zemanick and the stakes are high -- the winning chef takes home a prize of $10,000.

The event has limited seating and you must RSVP to Mitch Dickman at 720-290-1104 to get in, but if watching TV alone on your couch has lost its once glorious appeal, maybe it's time to get a closer look at the competition. Hurry to the kitchen -- things are sure sizzling in there.

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.
