RUMBLE IN THE ROCKIES: GET YOUR CHEFS CHALLENGE ON
Time & Location
About The Event
Sunday, April 29, the Flatirons Food Film Festival is holding a double-strength chefs challenge event, Rumble in the Rockies, featuring two chefs challenges: a live battle between two teams headed by Executive Chefs Kyle Mendenhall of Arcana in Boulder, and Ryan Gorby of Cho77 in Denver; followed by a screening of a chefs’ challenge comedy film, Cook Up a Storm.
The live challenge will pit Eastern and Western cuisine teams against each other. Chef Ryan Gorby will head the East team. Chef Kyle Mendenhall will head the West team. Each three-chef team will cook two dishes in an hour. Samples of the dishes will be available for all audience members to taste, and they will be judged by an all-female panel of judges. Audience members will vote for their favorite dish, and the judges’ panel will determine their own critical favorite.
After the live challenge, Cook Up a Storm will screen. This Hong Kong comedy depicts a celebrated hometown Cantonese street food chef who experiences a mutual antagonism for a newcomer chef, previously from a European Michelin-starred restaurant. Their bad blood culminates in a high-stakes televised international culinary face-off in Macau.
