Table 6: Seasonally Inspired Cuisine in Denver

October 22, 2014 4:04 pm

With twenty years of culinary experience at distinguished restaurants across the country, Executive Chef Scott Parker creates a daily Bistro menu inspired by the seasons at Denver’s Table 6.

Several small and large plates feature fresh ingredients with a playful yet approachable execution. The space is inviting and intimate with a handful of tables, hard wood floors, and an open kitchen. Customers appreciate the fresh bread basket to start the meal, and if chocolate beignets are on the evening’s dessert menu, diners advise you don’t pass them up. For main courses, Table 6 offers starters like arugula salad, chicken liver mousse, a flatbread with pesto and ricotta dip, and entrees like duck confit, lamb sirloin, scallops, and gluten free fried chicken. The restaurant also serves a popular Sunday brunch, with French toast and pancakes appearing alongside duck meatballs and a pork loin club sandwich.

Check out Table 6's website to learn more about this unique Denver eatery.

Sample These Acorn Squash Recipes This Fall

October 16, 2014 5:04 pm

Acorn squash is a type of winter squash with a unique dark green rind, longitudinal ridges and a yellowish-orange inside that tastes sweet and mild. This squash is so versatile that even the most novice home chef can easily prepare it in a variety of different ways. Here are just three ways to try your hand at serving acorn squash this fall.

Baked Acorn Squash [allrecipes.com]
To really get a good idea of how acorn squash tastes, you should first prepare it all by itself. This simple recipe involves baking a halved acorn squash with just a bit of butter and brown sugar to create a healthy side dish or even a unique dessert.

Acorn Squash Soup with Kale [marthastewart.com]
With a hearty texture and autumnal flavors, this soup is perfect for those chilly fall evenings. Pureeing the acorn squash is one of the best ways to prepare it for use in a soup, while adding crispy bacon and finely chopped kale adds a darker, smokier flavor that contrasts the sweetness of the squash.

Spinach and Acorn Squash Ravioli [myrecipes.com]
Acorn squash makes a wonderful filling for pasta, and in this creative recipe it’s blended with creamy ricotta cheese and chopped spinach for added flavor. Plus, using wonton wrappers instead of the usual pasta dough saves on calories, and it’s much easier than rolling out that dough by hand.
