Samples World Bistro's Chef wins award

 

Samples World Bistro’s Executive Chef, Darrell Jensen, won the 2015 People’s Choice Best Chef Award at the Denver Pairsine Chefs Fine Food & Wine Competition on July 15, 2015 at the Omni Interlocken Hotel in Broomfield, CO.

Samples World Bistro’s first dish was the Chili con Carne & Cheddar Arancini, a spicy, Southwest chili inside a fried risotto ball.  It was served over an herbed, spiced sour cream and garnished with curled green onions.  The second dish was Le Kit Cat, a chocolate mousse served on a crisp, peanut butter wafer  dusted with espresso, cocoa powder and garnished with beer infused whipped cream and vanilla sauce.

Pairsine is hosted by the Wine Country Network.  250 people attended the event.  The chefs’ food and beer pairings were scored by the judges and attendees.
