Tonight: Frasca chef competes on Top Chef: Masters
If you've been following Top Chef: Masters, the Top Chef spinoff that airs every Wednesday night on Bravo, then you know that Lachlan MacKinnon-Patterson, exec chef at Boulder's Frasca Food & Wine (1738 Pearl Street), is a contestant on the show, wielding knives alongside fellow kitchen wizards Rick Bayless, Hubert Keller and Wylie Dufresne. And tonight, you can join other like-minded fans at a Frasca viewing party, to see how Mackinnon-Patterson stacks up against fellow competitors Rick Moonen, Michael Chiarello and some Swedish chef named Nils Noren in a bid to win $100,000 for charity.
In return for your unyielding support and applause for the house patriarch, the Frasca kitchen and bar crew will reward you with complimentary appetizers and refreshments. The party will start at 6:30 p.m. and the episode will air at 8 p.m. on a giant TV on the patio. Call 303-442-6766 for more info.
