The "Taste of Elegance" Competition pairs Gold Medal wines from The Denver International Wine Competition, with some of America's most creative chefs. While the event is sometimes referred to as "Iron Chef meets wine", participating chefs have no secret ingredient. They are assigned two gold medal wines (white & red) one week before the competition. Chef's are provided with sample bottles to taste and develop their custom paired dishes.
On event day, the participating chefs will create custom paired dishes, served in appetizer portions. Representatives from the assigned gold medal winery will pour wine samples alongside the chef's food table.
A panel of notable food and wine critics/experts will taste each culinary creation with its assigned wine.
