Kitchens around town are on full effect coming up for Live at the Vineyards happening  Saturday August 12. Over 25 restaurants will be showcased on that day. One of the restaurants that will be there will be Del Frisco's Grille.

The challenge this morning is to pair Del Frisco's dish (which will be fresh cut Ahi Tuna with a Spicy Guacamole in a Crispy Wonton Shell and topped with a Spicy Aioli) with a wine selected by Carolyn Joy from Joy Wine and Spirits during our monthly Wine and Food Pairing. 

This is Eats and Beats, the Alfresco Edition, so named by Arvida, which means what? Fresh.  Carolyn Joy from Joy Wine and Spirits anchors our monthly wine and food pairing.

Standing outside the KUVO parking lot with Howard Treppeda's brick oven wood-fired pizza, the pizza were being made and cooked on the spot, and it created quite a stir.  Carolyn's pairing choice for the variety of pizzas Howard cranked out, Scarpetta Timido, a perfect summer rosé for our impromptu garden party.  Listen below!  

Here are the links to our contributors this month:

Our guest chef for the May 2017 edition of KUVO's Wine and Food Pairing is the new chef at Dazzle at Baur's Mario Godoy.  He'll be serving a fresh take on a traditional recipe from his native Jalisco, Mexico.  And sommelier Carolyn Joy has just the match.

Godoy's dish is called "Carnes En Su Jugo."  He'll be serving it at KUVO Night, a benefit for the community jazz radio station on Thursday, May 25 at the new downtown Denver home of Dazzle Jazz, 1512 Curtis St.

Carolyn Joy believes in natural wine.  Natural viticulture, bio-dynamic... It's kind of making the way wine was made a century ago... new again.  Joy, sommelier and proprietor of Joy Wine and Spirits in Denver visits "First Take with Lando and Chavis" monthly.

Joy says there are more than 200 additives used in bulk wine production.  Some additives are natural, like  fish bladder and egg whites.  Some additives are not natural, like "Mega-purple," which adds a deeper crimson to the color of red wine.

Something sparking is the easy holiday choice, and for good reason says Carolyn Joy, who joins us monthly on "First Take with Lando and Chavis" for a wine and food pairing segment.
