Guard and Grace, the beloved steakhouse in Denver led by the acclaimed Chef Troy Guard, is delighted to host Chef Rocco DiSpirito for a collaboration cocktail event and launch party for Chef Rocco’s latest cookbook Everyday Delicious: 30-minute (ish) Home-Cooked Meals Made Simple, on May 22nd, 2024. These two culinary masters will present a joint passed menu featuring special bites from Chef Rocco’s already #1 best seller. Guests will have the opportunity to have their cookbooks personally signed by Chef Rocco.

After their wildly successful 2022 collaboration, Chef Guard once again welcomes Chef DiSpirito, a James Beard Award winner, three-star recipient from the New York Times, 15-time cookbook author, and nationally acclaimed chef, to join him in the Mile High City at his award-winning modern steakhouse, Guard and Grace.

The event, priced at $85, will give guests the opportunity to meet the two chefs and try dishes from Chef Rocco’s new cookbook while also taking a copy home with them. Everyday Delicious: 30-minute (ish) Home-Cooked Meals Made Simple showcases Chef Rocco’s chef-inspired recipes to bring joy and comfort to daily cooking.

Says Chef Troy Guard, “Chef Rocco is a titan in the industry, and we’re stoked to host him again for an amazing evening. The recipes he’s put together give everyone an easy way to elevate their home cooking game. Our guests are in for a treat on the 22nd.”  

Says Chef Rocco DiSpirito, “I am thrilled to be back in Denver, collaborating with my good friend Chef Troy at Guard and Grace. Chef Troy and his team know how to throw a party and I’m so thankful to join him for my cookbook launch.”

The cocktail-style evening will consist of passed drinks and small bites from Chef Guard and Chef Rocco, with the opportunity to meet the two chefs and a chance to have their cookbooks personally signed by Chef Rocco.

Each chef is making multiple dishes from the recipes in Chef Rocco’s book alongside Guard’s signature bold flair and playful style.

Guard is always looking for the next opportunity to bring exceptional talent to Denver for events, providing his guests with unforgettable dining experiences. In addition to hosting Chef Rocco in the past, Guard has opened the doors of Guard and Grace to host celebrity Chef Andrew Zimmern, the award-winning duo behind The Fried Rice Collective, numerous local Denver culinary talents, and annual collaborations with Fund Recovery in partnership with retired Denver Broncos legends. Most recently, he invited Denver’s finest chefs to celebrate Guard & Grace’s 10th Anniversary in spectacular fashion.
