On Sunday, Feb. 17, 2019, members of the Denver Mile High Bailliage were treated to an exceptional dinner by one of Denver’s most exciting chefs.

Chef Caroline Glover was recently named as one of Food & Wine’s Best New Chefs; her restaurant Annette has been nominated for several James Beard Awards and was named one of 2017’s best new restaurants by Bon Appetit.

In between her time working in some of New York and Denver’s finest establishments, Chef Glover worked on farms around the country, and that farming experience unquestionably informs her cooking.

The tiny restaurant just east of Denver provided an intimate environment, against a backdrop of falling snow outside the floor-to-ceiling windows, for a dinner prepared in a kitchen staffed by women, and paired with wines produced by women.

Chef Glover’s mission is to serve “scratch to table” wood-fired food to her diners as though they were guests in her home. She easily accomplished this goal.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chaîne members and their guests were greeted with a variety of delightful canapés, paired with a rich, complex Tissot Crémant du Jura. Course after course, delectable plates distracted guests from the worsening weather. From the braised fennel right up to the lovely petite almond cakes with Mascarpone and charred grapefruit, it was a perfect winter scratch to table meal.
