Hi! I’m Toni Dash, the writer/blogger, photographer, recipe developer and creator of Boulder Locavore®. I’m so glad you are here!
What can you expect to find on BoulderLocavore.com?
My goal is to make your life easier in the kitchen. You can serve up delicious, seasonal recipes without taking hours to do so, or using difficult to find ingredients. I strive to create food that is neither pretentious or pedestrian, but instead interesting recipes that are easy to make. I always look for ways to make the ordinary unique to add excitement to your table (without more effort!)
All of the recipes here are personally developed by me (unless otherwise noted) and fit into my busy life as a business woman, wife, mother and dog-mom. The recipes are all gluten-free, often naturally, and have been tested on gluten-eaters with a seal of approval.
I love taking my readers along on my travels, sharing unique finds and great food wherever I go.
More about Toni: I am an adventurous spirit who is constantly exploring and seeking new education and experiences. Food is no exception. I’ve had a rapt curiosity about food my entire life, whether it be trying new, unique foods at home or using food as a cultural divining rod when traveling the world. I’m always seek the next food adventure.
The seed that started BoulderLocavore.com in 2010: I originally started Boulder Locavore out of a personal food experiment to see if I could exist over a Colorado winter, sourcing all my protein and produce from within a 100-mile radius. I succeeded and in the process discovered surprising local food resources for sourcing winter food, and new ways of keeping food I wouldn’t have found without my dedicated quest. After many requests to share my findings, I started Boulder Locavore as a depository to share all my finds.
As part of the early days I began sharing seasonal recipes. When eating seasonally, the ingredients are the star attraction and the recipe follows. Readers all over the United States and the world began to follow those recipes which shaped the direction of BoulderLocavore.com to what it is today.
The first blog post I ever wrote, And So It Begins…, shares more about what lead me to start Boulder Locavore.
