THAT'S COLORADO CLASSIQUE!
The Junior League of Denver is excited to announce the publication of our 5th cookbook, Colorado Classique.
As varied as the scenery is in our beautiful state, Colorado's culinary landscape is equally diverse. Colorado Classique
will feature a collection of recipes from the casual Apres Ski Beans to the elegant Truffled Gnocchi. A memorable meal is often one that is exciting to the eye as well as to the tongue. Our partnership with Souders Studios
captured these distinct flavors throughout this book in over 70 mouth-watering photos featuring some of our favorite recipes.
We are introducing beer flavor profiles provided by Boulder Beer Company, Colorado's first microbrewery. You'll learn whether a pilsner or a malt will be the perfect match for your meal. If you prefer wine, The Vineyard Wine Shop has provided wine pairing suggestions including details on why a particular wine will compliment your recipe, for example, whether it has fruity or earthy notes that enhance the flavors of the dish.
From beekeepers to potato fields to vintners....who knew?
Colorado is known for visually-stunning landscapes that range from its high sandy desert plains to its snow-capped Rocky Mountains. This visual story of natural wonder will be told through 16 breathtaking photos generously donated by John Fielder.
But there's more to the story.
From beekeepers ... to buffalo ranchers... to mountain potato fields and vintners...Colorado is an amazing state.
