Colorado chefs cook their asses off -- not just in their respective restaurants but at culinary events all over the city, and last night was no exception, as thirty chefs from Denver, Boulder and Colorado Springs convened at the Colorado Convention Center to cook at Colorado Chefs Up Front, a benefit for Share Our Strength's Cooking Matters Colorado, a local nonprofit that empowers families at risk for hunger to eat well on a budget.

It's one of the best -- if not the best -- culinary gatherings in Denver, and the chefs, all of whom create a swell of dishes that are paired with wines (and, in some cases, sake), also design aprons for a silent auction -- and those aprons are definitely collector items. I've included several of those, along with plenty of food shots and chef-y mugshots from last night's soiree.
