My trip to Colorado was a smashing success! I managed to squeeze in a baby’s 1st birthday party, some plant-based cooking lessons for my friend Patty, a day trip to Boulder and still had time to see the Yves Saint Laurent exhibit at the Denver Art Museum before I flew back to Oregon.
I am super proud of Patty for making the decision to improve her relationship with fruits and veggies. We were blending up green smoothies, experimenting with different bean dips like hummus and simple meals such as orange-chili glazed yams with black beans and rice were a hit. I’d have to say that the best service we had when eating out was at Snooze in Denver. Though not an exclusively veg*n eatery, they whipped up a monster tofu/soyrizo breakfast burrito that really hit the spot. I felt like a bit of a lush since I indulged in not one, but two Bruce Lychee mimosas.
Arrived back in Bend to help as Sous Chef for my cousin Everett’s 1st birthday celebration and got distracted with a little more “research”- lunch at Boken and happy hour at Flatbread Pizza. The KimChee Bloody Mary at Boken may be the best I’ve ever had. I love the trend of eating small plates tapas or izakaya style.
