<![CDATA[Table Talk: Friends of James Beard Dinner honors late chef, raises money for scholarships]]> http://gazette.com/table-talk-friends-of-james-beard-dinner-honors-late-chef-raises-money-for-scholarships/article/1591846?custom_click=rss http://gazette.com/table-talk-friends-of-james-beard-dinner-honors-late-chef-raises-money-for-scholarships/article/1591846?custom_click=rss

For the fifth year, some of Colorado's top toques have come together to prepare a Friends of James Beard Dinner at Devil's Thumb Ranch Resort & Spa in Tabernash. The unique dinner was enjoyed by 82 guests who paid $200 each for the privilege of tasting the over-the-top, eight-course feast. Joseph Phelps wines were paired with each course.

The dinner had a bittersweet meaning for the ranch chefs who organized the event. It was held in memory of Evan Treadwell, who was executive chef at Devil's Thumb from 2011 until his death in a boating accident this year. In 2012, he spearheaded the idea of holding the annual dinners. That first dinner was prepared by the ranch staff. In 2013, he recruited several Denver chefs to prepare the food.

It's always time for cocktails someplace in the world. Or at least that was my rationalization for attending a drink-making seminar at 2:30 p.m. on a late October weekend. The class was one of the programs offered during the Les Dames d'Escoffier International's annual conference in Washington, D.C. The organization is an invitation-only group for women leaders in the food, beverage and hospitality professions.

In keeping with the theme of the conference, "Global Appetite-Local Impact," D.C. distillers, bartenders and spirits distributers presented the seminar. Tables were set up with cutting boards, bar utensils and, of course, booze.

Readers were sympathetic about my breakup with soft cooked eggs: the topic of my Nov. 9 On Food column. I had a few Jazzercise gal pals express pity for the loss of my morning obsession. One suggested I might try liquid eggs from a carton, which do not contain egg yolks. That sounded like a reasonable solution to get a protein boost to kick-start the day.

Sally Metzger emailed a message about her similar experience with runny yolk eggs.

"I had the same thing happen to me a few years ago," she said. "Fixed myself my usual bi-weekly egg, took one bite, then couldn't get to the bathroom quickly enough to hurl the whole thing. Waited a couple of weeks then tried again, cooking it differently.

If your idea of Black Friday has nothing to do with shopping malls and everything to do with planning leftover turkey meals, we have your back. Having spent a decade as the vice president of marketing and consumer affairs for the National Turkey Federation in Washington, D.C., I have a few suggestions to take the stress out of storing and repurposing the holiday bird.


Cooked turkey shouldn't be left on the table for more than two hours. At that point, it needs to hit thje fridge, which should be at 40 degrees or less. To prepare it for refrigerating:

- Slice large pieces of meat so they will cool quickly.

- "Shingle" slices or pieces of turkey in chilled, sanitized, shallow pans.

- Fill a pan no

Provecho - Fresh Mexican Cuisine, 3240 Centennial Blvd., has been open a few weeks, with owners Carole and Jorge De La Fuente delivering authentic Mexican dishes on the extensive menu.

I spotted the chili en nogada ($15.99). It's a traditional dish found in eateries in Mexico City.

This entree did not disappoint with an oven-roasted poblano pepper stuffed with a blend of three ground meats, raisins and walnuts. Topped with white nogada walnut sauce and pomegranate seeds, it's designed to represent the colors of the Mexican flag: green pepper, white sauce and red pomegranate seeds.

According to the website, the name Provecho (proh-veh-choh), is a customary salutation offered before starting a meal and means "to make the
