ColoradoCooking Vacations, Foodie Tours, Culinary Getaways

Colorado offers unique culinary styles and cuisine options which will make your culinary vacation a rich one. There are many sides to Colorado's cuisine, but most notable is its use of wild game, such as buffalo, yak, and elk, which adds pizazz to ordinary dishes. Foodies will delight in the variety of tastes from gourmet mountain cuisine to saloon-style grub. Providing both international and ethnic cuisine, Colorado has taken the best of Mexican cuisine and made it its own, with the star being thick, spicy green chile which is Colorado’s gravy, comfort food, and cure-all rolled up in one. In addition, beer and wine connoisseurs are increasingly drawn to Colorado’s growing list of award-winning wines and beers.
