Overview

Some of the best cuisine in Colorado can be enjoyed at a diversity of historic locales, from classic diners, to dude ranches, to old hotels, and even a former filling station. Please your palate as well as your appetite for historical trivia as you prepare chilled zucchini soup from Denver's Castle Marne, Spanish flan from the Twin Owls Steakhouse in Estes Park, coconut barbecue sauce from the Laramie River Ranch in North Park, or seafood gumbo from the Royal Gorge Route Railroad. A number of the recipes are historic in themselves, offering such time-honored delicacies as prime rib of buffalo from Denver's Buckhorn Exchange to The Fort in Morrison's cast iron cobbler. Intriguing stories combined with delicious recipes from some of the finest restaurants in the world are your tickets to discovering the wonders of dining in historic Colorado!

Editorial Reviews

Randall H. Lortscher
Colorado Pioneers have always had an innovative history in the use of recipes, preservation, and food storage due to our unique climate. The only fresh fruit available to Silverton miners at 10,000 feet elevation was rhubarb, a predominant ingredient found in such foods as smoked elk jerky, salted trout, and other provisions, which could then be placed in the root cellar during the long winter months. Recipes from Historic Colorado captures the essence of Colorado cooking.
John Hickenlooper
From some of Denver's and Colorado's oldest dining establishments to new favorites, this book captures the innovative culinary style of the New West—one bite at a time.
Rich Grant
Colorado has been long known for its scenic mountain beauty, but now, thanks to this wonderful new book, travelers can exlore Colorado's equally exciting culinary adventures. From the world's most famous ski resorts, to quaint Victorian mining towns, from Colorado's hip, young capital city of Denver to the wineries of the Western slope, Colorado's culinary scene is soaring as high as the Rocky Mountains, and this book will let you hit the trail to great dining experiences.
