On Culinary Connectors’ five self-guided tours, travelers explore neighborhoods’ culinary shops and markets with tastings and special discounts at three to six markets and one to two restaurants. On the downtown Boulder tour, hungry explorers stroll down the quaint streets of Boulder, named America’s Foodiest Town in 2010 by Bon Appétit, and sample a cornucopia of casual, exotic, and sustainable options. On historic, eclectic South Pearl Street, walkers taste premium coffees from Kaladi Brothers Coffee and a free sample at the Pajama Baking Company, such as blueberry cheesecake or macadamia-nut brittle dressed in frosting onesies.
The LoDo lower downtown tour sates appetites for historic architecture and shopping, and tour-goers in Highlands Square sample gourmet cupcakes, savory spices, and fresh seafood. Eyes widen at public art installed along tree-lined streets on the Cherry Creek North tour as flavorful samples at The Truffle Cheese Shop pique taste buds. If tour-goers can time their visits to avoid busy periods, chefs or store staff may be able to take the time to impart culinary inspirations, suggest alcohol pairings, or explain how they got their cooking skills from a mysterious old man at the crossroads.
To really get to know a city, you'll need your feet, your eyes, and your taste buds. That's what Culinary Connectors' tour guides think, anyway. They lead visitors and locals on tasting-filled explorations of Denver's gastronomic scene. Perennial favorites and hidden neighborhood gems fill ever-changing itineraries. At each restaurant, bakery, or craft brewery stop, participants enjoy small samples and maybe even a chat with a chef. Tours typically take between two and three hours, depending on the number of scheduled stops.
