Pairsine is the combination of the words "Pairing and Cuisine." Pronounced (Pair-Zeen), this competition is more than producing a pretty plate. It is about challenging a chef's ability and understanding of wine and food pairing. Chefs are assigned two different highly rated wines and must create/invent a food pairing for each wine served in bite portions on competition day. Pro judges and attendees taste the food pairings with the wines and vote for their favorite pairings.
Wine Country Network first launched this event at the 2006 Denver International Wine Festival. It immediately became a big hit. For the first three years, Hosea Rosenberg, Executive Chef at Jax Fish House in Boulder reigned champion, before moving on to win Bravo's "Top Chef" Season 5.
We are excited to announce another edition of Pairsine Chefs Fine Food will be rolling into downtown Denver on Thursday, November 7, 2019. Up to ten top chefs will create gourmet food pairings to match with award-winning wines. Guests will enjoy live Jazz and a boozy silent auction benefiting There With Care.
