The Rocky Mountain Health Care Services Chef Showcase had the happiest of problems, becoming so popular that it burst at the seams.

The eighth annual festival of deliciousness, with 22 chefs, was moved to the Olympic Training Center's spacious Sports Center on May 3, where it filled with 720 happy foodies. Before the plates were dished up, VIPs and sponsors were guests at a reception in the Visitor Center.

Featured chefs were from 503W, Alchemy, Ascent Catering, Bonny and Read, Cerberus, Cheyenne Mountain Country Club, Colorado Craft, Green Line Grill, Hotel Elegante, retired chef Joey Mestas, Ivywild School, Moxie, Oskar Blues, Picnic Basket Catering, ProStart, The Rabbit Hole, Sarges' Grill, Silver Key, Springs Orleans, Top Notch Catering, The Warehouse and Whole Foods. Pouring the java was Golden Pine Coffee Roasters.

Patrick Robinson was the chef in charge, serving on the event committee.

When tasting concluded, guests put their tokens in the chefs' hat on the table of their favorite. Winning the gold medal was the ProStart team of hospitality education students at Doherty High School. Silver honors went to Matthew Richardson of Cheyenne Mountain Country Club. David Parker's green chile from Sarges' Grill took the bronze medal.

The evening was a benefit for Rocky Mountain Health Care Services, which helps those with brain injuries and "frail elderly" to live independently at home. Programs include BrainCare and Rocky Mountain PACE providing delivery and support services. Money raised was especially vital this year because of federal cuts in medical services, said RMHC President/CEO Nathan Olson.
