The kitchen crew at Cook Street Fine School of Cooking, 1937 Market Street, is searching for a kick-ass judge to sound off at the school's upcoming cook-off, an Iron Chef-like duel on Friday, July 31, that's all part of Cook Street's ten-year anniversary celebrations.
If you'd like to voice your opinions alongside those of such esteemed fellow judges as yours truly and Penny Parker, business columnist at the Denver Post, send an e-mail, entitled "Why I Should Guest Judge 10-Minute Tastes," to firstname.lastname@example.org describing, in 150 words or less, why you should be a judge. (Don't forget to include your contact information.) Cook Street will publish a collection of the wackiest and best (and worst?) stories, and announce a winner July 27. And in addition to the opportunity to judge the competition, Cook Street will throw in some free shwag just for putting up with the likes of me.
