The Pairsine Chefs Fine Food and Wine Pairing Competition, November 2, 2017
The Pairsine Chefs Fine Food and Wine Pairing Competition took place on Thursday, November 2, as part of the three-day Denver International Wine Festival. Ten of Denver's top chefs were pitted against one another in a wine-and-food-pairing competition at the Denver Marriott Westminster. Judges and ticket holders picked their favorites of the night, but even without the competition, there was plenty of great food and wine. Here are the winning chefs:

People's Choice for Best Chef: Duy Pham, executive chef of Parker Garage.
Judges' Choice for Best Chef: Danielle Sorrano, sous chef at Mercantile Dining & Provision
Judges' Choice for Most Creative Chef: Richard Hammons, personal chef/owner of Five Star To You
