IntroductionIt should come as no surprise that Colorado has earned the tagline “the Napa Valley of beer.” Only California with more than 300 breweries, and with its 38 million people, has more breweries than Colorado. To really put things in perspective, as of the end of 2011, Colorado had a population of just over five million and more than140 breweries. For those beer lovers not lucky enough to live in Colorado, that’s 140 good reasons to visit the state.In many ways Colorado is the quietest of America’s craft beer heavyweight regions, happily thriving in the shadow of better-known beer epicenters likeCalifornia and Oregon. Colorado produces more beer per capita than any other state in the nation and that cannot be wholly attributed to Coors and Anheuser-Busch having long-established and large-scale breweries based in the state.Colorado’s breweries have a history of making history. The Coors brewery inGolden is one the oldest in America and is still the largest single-site brewery in the world. Boulder Beer Company in Boulder is one of the earliest pioneering craft breweries in America, helping establish a trend that has blossomed into a global movement, and with it, big business.

Vegetables and Savory Accompaniments

Kim Stanford and Bill Backhaus University of North Texas Press ePub


Welcome to our world of fresh, nutritious vegetables. Fresh vegetables are an important part of the healthy gluten-free lifestyle. We’ve learned that there are so many wonderful ways to prepare vegetable dishes. Our Roasted Potatoes with Caramelized Shallots, Blue Cheese and Asparagus tossed with Lemon Vinaigrette is among our favorites, as is Creamed Sweet Corn with Bacon and Jalapeño. And Kim’s Balsamic Herb-Roasted Vegetables? So good and so easy.

We’ve combined many of our vegetables with fruits, cheese, rice, meat, and spices to add variety and excitement. The Roasted Tomato and Goat Cheese Risotto Cakes are phenomenal, and we think Hatch (New Mexico) green chiles add a robust Southwestern flavor to dishes like our Hoochy-Coo Hatch Green Chile Polenta. Another favorite is Havarti, Gouda, and Cheddar Cheese Grits, and we just can’t get enough of the Gruyère-Jalapeño Scalloped Potatoes with Caramelized Onions.

The cocktail party has become the American way of turning everyone into a “Blithe Spirit.” How we do it depends entirely on the host—or hostess. Informality is its purpose, as munching on such oddments before or in place of a meal should keep conversation on the lighter and brighter things of the day.

Where to serve? Anywhere—the living room, the back porch, the kitchen; anywhere your guests or family choose to light.

If you are interested in its family tree, go to the Russian Zakouska. Being a hearty race, before dinner the Russians gather around a sideboard in a room adjoining the dining room and partake of all kinds of special pastries, smoked fish and such, with much conversation and strong drink. The French Hors d’oeuvre, the Scandinavian Smörgåsbord, the Italian Antipasto, all are offshoots of the Zakouska. . . . I like to keep [the cocktail tidbit] as uncomplicated in flavor as possible, freshly made, cold and crisp—or hot—as the case may be. . . . These few ideas, I think, will answer for all kinds of tastes, for the hostess who has time, or not much time; an unlimited budget, or just a few spare dimes. I think you should let guests pile as high and wide as they like, so very few of these ideas are to be spread on silly little squares of this and that by the hostess beforehand.

Bread is so elemental to life that it really was hard to imagine living without it. We’ve eaten some lousy gluten-free breads, and a cheeseburger on a corn tortilla is, well, a cheeseburger on a corn tortilla. No more. We love bread. No longer will you have to go without sandwiches, biscuits, your favorite Thanksgiving dressing, blueberry crumb muffins, cheese biscuits, pumpkin walnut bread, or buttermilk pancakes. They’re all here. Kim’s the baker and she adores pizza. Her last meal would be pizza. Our recipe for Pizza Crust is crispy and divine. You would never guess it’s gluten-free. Our recipes are creative and comforting, and they don’t taste like the side of a milk carton.

Remember, recipes that call for flour, bleached white flour, whole wheat, cracked wheat, barley, semolina, spelt, faro, kamut, triticale, or vital wheat gluten are not gluten-free. Don’t even think about eating those ingredients. Also remember that prepackaged bread crumbs, croutons, flour tortillas, pizza crust, piecrust, pretzels, wraps, pita bread, crackers, flatbread, and muffins are not gluten-free unless labeled as such. Our recipes really do allow you not only to maintain a gluten-free diet, but to enjoy it. We offer you one of the most important gifts in a gluten-free life: extraordinarily good-tasting gluten-free breads.
