What is the official Colorado food?
What can be considered the taste of Colorado?
There’s a good reason everyone gathers in the kitchen when they come to visit us. The kitchen is not only where the food is, but also where the love is. Food is a language of love and just like languages it is spoken differently everywhere you go.
In other words, what you find in Los Angeles might not be what you find in New York. What you eat in Japan will not be what you eat in Italy. That’s the beauty of food, it’s different everywhere you go.
Whenever I travel I try to get out of my comfort zone and eat what the locals eat. For example, when my husband and I went to Barcelona, we ate a lot of paella and drank cava. Yum! Doing this creates a unique experience, but also adds a layer to the memory bank when it comes to remembering the trip.
So what kind of food language do we speak in Colorado?
According to the Daily Meal, we don’t have official foods in Colorado. Sorry for the trick question earlier. Maybe we can flip the script a bit and ask a different question.
What should Colorado State Foods Be?
Daily Meal says we are one of the top 10 cattle producing states in the country. We know how to grow them and we know how to grill them. As a steak lover myself, I don’t think this is a bad option for Colorado.
Taste of Home says many of the sheep raised in America are also from Colorado. It seems to me that a large part of the nation depends on us for meat. Although I have never really eaten lamb, I have heard that it is quite tasty.
Whether it’s green chilies or poblano peppers, I think it’s safe to say that we love spicy things in Colorado. To make any of these variations of our state pepper would be … for lack of a better term … spicy.
