A Delicious Honor.
Oh man. Everyday brings a new reason I’m glad I moved to Boulder, be it the weather, the bike accessibility, or the preponderance of killer coffee.
The latest comes from Bon Appetit Magazine, which just named Boulder “America’s Foodiest Town 2010.” In a glowing and mouth-watering review, Andrew Knowlton describes dishes from favorite local restaurants and watering holes like The Kitchen, Mateo, Frasca, and The Bitter Bar. He attempts the full Boulder experience by going car-free for his week in town, and revels in how much better burgers and beer taste after a good hike.
To be precise, a “foodie” isn’t a “gourmet,” “gourmand,” or “glutton.” A foodie is someone who’s passionate about enjoying and learning about food, be it the local heirloom tomatoes, molecular gastronomy, or their grandmother’s ambrosial dumplings. Boulder’s full of people who love and care about their food, from farm to plate.
God, I love this town.
