Sip. Savor. Support.

The first annual Culinary Classic, a fundraiser for Work Options, will feature a strolling dinner made up of small plates from the best chefs in town as they compete for the Golden Spoon award for best dish. Mingle with friends, chat with the chefs and see live culinary demos in action as you eat your way through the new culinary hub at Mosaic Community Campus (formerly Johnson & Wales University culinary school.) Be sure to vote for your People's Choice favorites, and stay for the live auction for a chance to win a one-of-a-kind experience!

SIP on local beer, wine, and signature cocktails.

SAVOR small plates from 20 of the best chefs in town.

SUPPORT the mission of Work Options, a Denver-based 501(c)3 charity that has helped thousands of Coloradans find meaningful careers working with food by providing FREE culinary job training, resources and supportive services.

Join us Monday, May 22nd, 2023 for this deliciously fun event!

Don't miss the VIP Happy Hour with Chef Jennifer Jasinski of Riojo, Stoic & Genuine, Ultreia, and Bistro Vendome!

Why have this event on a Monday? We come together to honor and celebrate the culinary community - for most restaurants, Monday is the slowest night of the week - which means these amazing chefs are more able to join us and share their talents!

The Culinary Classic is presented by Work Options in partnership with our sponsors. All proceeds from this event directly support Work Options.
