BOULDER, Colo. (February 7, 2020) – Boulder and Denver’s best chefs are back in this culinary showdown – with a twist! Four MEN and four WOMEN chefs will face off to create film-inspired dishes for a fun and friendly competition. “Badass Women Chefs” were the sold-out feature of last year’s CineCHEF, so we’ll see how the men stack up against the women for BIFF 2020. Attendees will taste and vote on the star chefs’ cinema-based masterpieces, while also enjoying live music, wine, beer and dessert. May the best chef – and gender – win!
