I have been a judge for the Top Chef competition to benefit Life Stories Child & Family Advocacy (Formerly A Kid's Place). I have hosted a couple times. Last year, I was just a guest. This year I am honored to return as the host and MC as Top Chef 2017 is Heading to the Caribbean. The event is Saturday, April 22 from 5 to 10 p.m. at Island Grove Exhibition Hall in Greeley!

The evening features fine food and drink, a friendly competition between the area’s “Top Chefs,” local celebrity judges, live music, an open bar and silent and live auctions. This year, the four restaurants competing for the title of Top Chef are The Tavern, blue AGAVE Grill, Generations Wine & Martini Bar, and Slate Italian Eatery.
