Denver restaurant and gourmet scene

Denver in Colorado is commonly referred to as the gateway to the Rocky Mountains. In winter, winter sports enthusiasts, skiers and snowboarders, whose destinations are the ski resorts in the American Rockies, are Vail, Aspen and Breckenridge. In the summer, friends of the Rocky Mountains arrive at Denver Airport to travel further into the stunning mountains that can be seen from Denver's city center to the west. Denver itself is a good starting point for tours through the mountains of Colorado, Wyomings or Montanas, but also for travel in the southwestern United States. The city is also considered an excellent shopping paradise - good to recharge your suitcase with new jeans or other clothing before heading home.

The president and managing director of the tourism authority VISIT DENVER puts it in a nutshell: “We have learned from studies that some visitors to Denver like to do sports, some like museums and some like shopping. But everyone is eating and everyone loves food. Culinary tourism is becoming more and more interesting because visitors want to eat and drink local specialties - they want to shop at farmers' markets, try locally made cheese and bread, or drink a locally produced beer. Farms, ranches, wineries and distilleries all have a strong local market, but they understand that they are also part of the tourism industry and offer tours to serve these visitors. ”

The new blog is published by Lori Midson of Westword "Café Society". She is supported by a number of the best-known authors and bloggers from Denver on the subject of food.
