Roughly 1,300 miles separate Englewood from New Orleans, but on Wednesday, Feb. 3 that distance will evaporate when acclaimed chef and Louisiana native son John Besh arrives to treat local foodies to his signature southern cuisine.
Besh will be in town to participate in the seventh-annual “Give Your Love to Breakthrough” gala, a fundraiser for the tuition-free, educational program, Breakthrough Kent Denver. The gala takes place from 6:30-9:30 p.m. at the Schaden Dining Hall on Kent Denver School campus, 4000 E. Quincy Ave. in Englewood. A private, one-hour VIP reception with Chef Besh begins at 5:30 p.m.
