LETTER FROM THE EDITOR


Let’s Eat!


For me, food is a bit of an obsession. It’s not just eating great food (though, I do enjoy that). Rather, it’s the whole experience.


I love learning how farmers and artisan


food-makers produce regional ingredients that place a premium on great flavor as well as on responsible, sustainable techniques. I love talking to chefs to hear what inspires them to create menus that are culinary alchemy — dishes that deliver visceral pleasure with every bite. I also love chips and salsa. And a really


good margarita. Most of all, though, I love sitting down with friends and family at the end of a long day, filling the table with food, popping open a couple of bottles of wine and sharing a meal together. And that’s probably food’s greatest pleasure: It further enriches time spent with people we care about. In this food-centric issue of Dorado, we skip the usual top-restaurant lists and celebrity-chef profiles, focusing instead on the experience and pleasure of eating in the Southwest. We travel to remote southern Utah to dine at a restaurant with an innovative


farm-to-table menu that inspires foodie pilgrimages (page 42). We go shopping at the Santa Fe Farmers Market, one of the best in the country, to taste green chiles and take in the weekly ritual that brings the whole town together (page 46). We offer ideas on how to craft a modern, stylish table setting for your next big get-together (page 48). And the catch of the day doesn’t get much fresher than at The Broadmoor resort’s Fishing Camp, where we cast a line on Colorado’s Tarryall Creek (page 52). There’s so much more to enjoy in this


issue of Dorado. I encourage you to dig in! And if you’ll excuse me, I’m a little hungry. I’ve got some chips and salsa calling my name.
