"CHILI ON THE ROCKS"
COOKING UP COLORADO’S SIGNATURE DISH & A HIKE IN ITS MOST ICONIC LOCALE!
Join us for a memorable 3-hour get-together in the magnificent Colorado foothills while you learn to cook up a batch of Colorado’s iconic Pork Green Chili. Then while it’s simmering, we’ll enjoy a glorious hike in Colorado’s one and only Red Rocks Park.
Depending on the group and weather, our hike will be between 1½ - 3 miles long through Red Rocks Park, but will be of easy-moderate difficulty with no intensive rock scrambling.
After the hike we’ll return to my house just a few minutes up the canyon to enjoy our Chili with Homemade Cornbread and some liquid refreshments. Remember to bring a hat, sunscreen and a water bottle (you can refill it while we’re cooking), and a small container to take home leftover chili (if there is any!)

Which Food Is Colorado’s Most Iconic?
Winner Green Chili!
From CPR News, December 23, 2019
Philadelphia has the cheesesteak. New York can claim bagels and a pizza-style. They have barbeque in Kansas City. But, which food represents Colorado? It was a delicious competition...nearly 70 percent of all votes cast for the state's most iconic food were cast for green chili - in fact, they chose it over beer of all things!
Now, we also heard that green chili is a New Mexico thing, not a Colorado thing. Perhaps you've heard about the green chili feud between the two states? Well, it doesn't really matter if it's New Mexico or Colorado...
One thing's for sure, you'd be hard-pressed to find green chili stew anywhere else in the country.
COOK & ENJOY AN AL FRESCO
We'll meet in my mountain kitchen over brunch cocktails or coffee, put on some cookin' music, and get to know each other while we tweak our menu.
All of our produce is organic, our dairy grass-fed, and our fish wild-caught
We'll make a fabulous breakfast pastry - scones, biscuits, muffins or cinnamon buns - the choice is yours, and a full brunch to accompany it, chosen from several of our Colorado-centric brunch menus.
Hopefully the fickle Colorado weather will cooperate, and we'll dine al fresco on the garden patio, otherwise, we'll ogle the mountain view from the dining room. The high point of our day is always sharing and enjoying the fruits of our labor over some fresh squeezed juice and freshly brewed coffee.
$90 pp - Cooking Class, Recipe Packet, Full Patio Brunch or Dining Room
Please remember to always wear close-toed shoes to class!
Protecting your toes is our primary concern since we'll be working with
sharp knives, hot water and heavy pots.
