Chef Carrie Baird, a Season 15 Bravo “Top Chef” Finalist and James Beard Semi-Finalist, is the Culinary Director of Tap & Burger and the chef/owner of the upcoming breakfast concept Fox and the Hen in Denver.  Formerly, she was the Executive Chef at the wildly popular Bar Dough, which was named one of the Top 25 Restaurants in Denver for three years in a row. Born in Idaho, but trained in Colorado with classic Mediterranean, Italian, and French techniques, Carrie believes great food comes from cooking from your heart.
