Around the World in 80 Plates is an exhilarating show on Bravo that involves 12 chefs who travel the world, while being tested on their culinary skills in different challenges recreating and reinventing the menus for world-renowned restaurant owners. One of the contestants this year (airing May 9th) is Colorado girl, Jenna Johansen.
To celebrate the airing of the show, Jenna is hosting a series of “Sprout Up” dinners at the newly opened, downtown Denver Studio F.
She will be hosting and preparing a 5-course paired wine and cocktail dinner, while paying respect to each region’s culture and heritage. Colorado Chef, James Mazzio (recently opened Red Star Deli) will be joining Jenna to help also celebrate the opening of Studio F and provide delicious tastes from around the world.
The courses start with tapas from Spain, to Thailand with lap chong salad, followed by Italy, France and finishing with Morocco for dessert with m’hanncha, a snake-shaped cake with almond-stuffed dates.
I will be attending and am excited to be part of this event, while helping Jenna celebrate the show! Hope to see you there.
Over the course of May 10, 11 & 12th each evening will feature two seatings at 6 PM and 8: 15 PM. Tickets are $100 and can be purchased online here.
