Come To Judge the Quick and the Bread

Four talented chefs, four spectacular, moist and delicious breads -- but only one will be crowned the winner. 

 Fresh City Life is bringing together food entrepreneurs and chefs for Battle Quick Bread – including Ellen Daehnick of Helliemae’s Salt Caramels. Though Ellen has a legion of fans who love her caramel sauces and candies, she jumped at the chance to compete for the bragging rights of Best Quick Bread. When asked about the competition, she said, “Look, I’ve got excellent recipes for quick breads with caramel in them, but maybe I’ll mix it up and do something chocolatey or with a touch of booze. Who knows – but I’m prepared to put my best bread forward!”  Meet Daehnick and our three other chefs (Jessica Gaydos, Juan Carlos Huerta and Amy Hoyt) – all of whom have a few tricks to share before the bread is broken.

The Quick and the Bread: Quick Bread Throwdown
Sunday, October 9, 1:30-3 p.m.
Central Library, Level B2 Conference Center
10 W. 14th Ave. Pkwy., Denver 80204

Free event.

Each chef will demo their best quick bread recipe and then our audience will get down to the hard work of sampling all fours breads and choosing their favorite.  And the chosen will reign as the supreme quick bread of Denver and Fresh City Life until next year’s recipe wars. After the sampling is done, audience members will leave with all the recipes to make at home just in time for the holiday baking season. Come to judge the quick and the bread!  Registration encouraged. Register at or call 720-865-1206.
