Uncorked Kitchen – Learn, Cook, Sip & Repeat

I traveled down from the mountains last weekend for the highly anticipated Denver Bloggers Club meetup at Uncorked Kitchen. Any event with this group of local area bloggers is sure to be an educational, networking, socializing hit. Add in bonus features of chef-led cooking and plating techniques and it’s a sure-fire recipe for success.

Uncorked Kitchen has a wine bar. So there’s that. Y’know – if you enjoy a great glass of vino among a fun vibe & friendly people. There are happy hours, special wine bar events, and private wine bar parties. They even have competitions with secret ingredients for those more gifted in the kitchen.

The kitchen is stocked chock full of everything you need to create culinary perfection and the chefs provide as much or as little instruction as you need.

Chef Albert demonstrates kitchen knife skills, tips, techniques and shortcuts.

This is one area to which I paid particular attention. My cutlery and plating skills are dismal at best. But I have new hope and a few steps in the right direction now. With practice comes …okay, I’m never gonna be perfect, but at least I should suck less at it.

Uncorked Kitchen will work with any dietary restrictions, and we had several in our group that are gluten-free. We made Squash with Chile Yogurt Sauce and White Wine Braised Chicken with Mustard and Thyme. Not a speck of gluten to be found.

One of these pics is not like the others …

What do you get when you put 20 food and lifestyle bloggers in a room with gorgeous food? A whole lotta pictures. I took over 100 photos myself. Maybe it was all the camera work and chopping. Or it could have been the enticing aromas and my growling belly. Or the combination. Yeah, I’m going with that for my food plating excuse. My plating didn’t hold snuff …but it sure was tasty!
