Tony's Market, 950 Broadway, will host a gourmet food- and wine-tasting from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. tonight to raise money for Street's Hope, a transitional housing facility and program for women coming out of the sex-trade industry. A minimum $100 tax deductible donation is suggested for this benefit, which is part of today's ColoradoGives project.
Tony's holiday tasting menu for the event will include plenty of veggie crudités, poached shrimp, braised beef short ribs on white cheddar polenta, and a cheese and charcuterie table with Sottocenere (if truffles are your thing, this cheese should be, too), cranberry-chipotle cheddar and white Stilton with pears and apples, as well as traditional Swiss cheese fondue with artisan bread and sausages. A dessert table with mini Linzer tortes, cherry-bourbon fruitcake, and Stollen should round off the evening nicely, and selected complimentary wines will be served.
