FIVE + Seven = The Year of the Women! Denver FIVE Has a Class of All Women for 2014.

Colorado’s team of elite tastemakers —FIVE™— celebrates the launch of their 2014 campaign with a new crop of talented chefs who are eager to showcase Colorado’s culinary talents on the local, regional and national levels.
Since 2008, FIVE™ has been a dedicated collaboration of Colorado’s most influential chefs.
A select group — chosen by Leigh Sullivan Enterprises — the FIVE™ chefs exemplify the passion, creativity and purpose that have become the staple of the Denver dining scene.
Despite criticism in past years of the lack of selection of local female talent, 2014 boasts not one, not two, but FIVE female chefs ready to take center-stage in Denver’s ever-illuminating national spotlight.
“This year, I want to celebrate all the women in our community who are truly redefining what it means to be a chef in Denver. Over the past several years I have seen a real renaissance in female-led culinary programs,” says Leigh Sullivan, owner of Leigh Sullivan Enterprises, who manages the FIVE™ operations.
“I know I say this every year, but this 7th class is a milestone for the FIVE™ tradition and I am honored to be working with these amazing women.”
FIVE™ will continue its schedule of FIVE™ @ Five dinners, an appearance at the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen, and the annual showing at the James Beard House in September.
A full schedule of events, tickets and locations will be available by visiting
