I have been on a journey with food my entire life exploring new ingredients, types of cuisine and using it as a cultural divining rod when traveling the globe. I am gluten free and see that as an opportunity for further food exploration rather than a restriction. Through gluten-free living I’ve discovered flours, grains and cooking preparations I never would have otherwise. I do believe food should be inclusive and ensure gluten options in my recipes for those who are not gluten-free. I celebrate seasonal ingredients and try to buy local/eat local whether it be when at home in Boulder Colorado or when traveling. I’m not a prissy cook; you’ll find my food to be full of flavor, approachable, at times rustic and hopefully not the same spin as you’d find elsewhere! I love to combine unexpected ingredients for simple, ‘big win’ end results!
Boulder Locavore was originally started after an experiment in 2009 to see if it was possible to only purchase protein and produce from a 100 miles radius over a Colorado winter. Not only was it possible, the discoveries and resources I found were too good not to pass along hence starting the blog Boulder Locavore, which has blossomed thanks to the kind interest of readers such as you.
Food is always best when shared and I’m delighted to have the opportunity to share some with you! When visiting Boulder Locavore you’ll find seasonal recipes for food and drink, food artisans and food travel. I have always loved photography which has become a big part of telling my food story too.
In food I find adventure and I hope you’ll enjoy that spirit of discovery while you are visiting Boulder Locavore. Thank you for taking your time to read!
