The ‘it’ crop

Cauliflower is booming in Boulder County and beyond

By Noel Phillips

Growing up, outside of being the ugly, bad-tasting vegetable no one wanted on the veggie platter at parties — the one even ranch dressing couldn’t help — cauliflower was rarely seen at my house, but for one exception: fried cauliflower. In my current commitment to healthy, conscious eating and living, I cringe at the memory, but the smell of frying cauliflower remains a vivid part of my childhood. I can still hear the Fry Daddy bubbling and churning like a witches’ cauldron as my step-father dropped battered cauliflower florets into the waiting hot oil like tiny virgins being sacrificed to our appetites.

Vern’s Place in Laporte is worth a stop on your next trip

By Matt Cortina

There is no better conversation about stuffed mountain lions than the conversation about stuffed mountain lions you have at Vern’s. If you’re headed north, it might be your first of many dining conversations about taxidermy; if you’re headed back to Boulder County, it might just be your last for a while.
