Colorado Matters at the tattered: 5280 the cookbook

Join fellow foodies and be part of a live audience at the Tattered Cover on Colfax, Nov. 12 at 7 p.m., for a special, food-themed edition of “Colorado Matters.”

Host Ryan Warner will interview 5280 Food Editor Amanda Faison, who's developed a new book,"5280: The Cookbook," that showcases top recipes from the local food scene.

Get inside perspective about what went into compiling and curating all 118 recipes in the book, each of which Amanda tested in her own kitchen. Local chefs Dana Rodriguez from Work & Class and Kelly Whitaker from Basta will also be on hand to talk about Colorado cuisine and share samples of the meatball and veggie lasagna recipes they contributed to the book.

This event is part of our monthly series “Colorado Matters at the Tattered,” which features interviews with Colorado authors and authors who write about Western issues. The event is free to attend; however, seating is limited and available on a first-come-first-served basis.

Listen to past interviews in the series and mark your calendar for next month’s interview on Dec. 8 with Christopher Hill, Dean of the Josef Korbel School of International Studies at the University of Denver who’ll be talking about his memoir,“Outpost: Life on the Frontlines of American Diplomacy,” and career as a U.S. diplomat.
