Kevin Taylor is one of Denver's most acclaimed chefs and the owner of several restaurants and cater- ing operations. His son, Ryan Taylor, is executive chef at Kevin Taylor's at the Opera House and Kevin Taylor Catering at the Denver Arts Complex. Chef Ryan cre- ated the menu for this dinner under the guidance of his father and mentor. Following dessert, confrères upheld bailliage tradi- tion by standing and toasting the waitstaff and kitchen brigade. The evening concluded with Bailli Allison Ahrens presenting commemorative pins to members of both teams.
