Don’t knock it til you’ve tried it

A tailgate chili-dog cooked at the A-Basin beach tastes as good as any fine cuisine.

SUMMIT COUNTY — Since we’ve been running food-related features for the past few weeks, I thought it would be a good time to go through the archives and post a few pics to whet your appetite. I tried to include a diverse selection to show the amazing variety of things that we ingest to nurture and sustain ourselves — and they’re all equally tasty, including the hot dog above and the fine and fancy desert in the picture below. Meanwhile, don’t forget to check Summit Voice each Thursday or Friday for the latest food features from contributing writer Tom Castrigno, a long-time local chef with a passion for quality. Click here to see his last few stories and don’t hesitate to contact us with ideas for food stories.

A fine assortment of sorbets and chocolate confections at the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs.

A dose of Austrian blood flowing through my veins makes me appreciated a good slice of apple strudel with whipped cream, and Bonnie's, a restaurant on the slopes of Aspen Mountain, delivers the goods. Click on the pic to visit Bonnie's Facebook page.
Several years ago I mentioned to my friend Steve Lipsher that I was going to Glenwood Springs and asked him for some food recommendations. As the former mountain-based reporter for the Denver Post, Steve knew his way around the region, so when he suggested Vicco's Charcoalburger Drive-In, I didn't hesitate for a second, and I wasn't disappointed. Definitely one of the best burgers in Colorado, best enjoyed in the car with Deep Purple's Smoke on the Water as the soundtrack, and don't forget the chocolate-peanut butter shake!

More beef in Glenwood Springs, in the restaurant of the Hotel Colorado, where the chef obviously knows his way around a filet mignon. Click to visit the hotel online.
For something completely different, I've included this image of my son holding a handful of wild strawberries we picked on a hike in Austria, along with a packet of creamy-crispy Mannerschnitten wafers. You can find these tasty cookies in the U.S. and if you see them on the shelf, don't pass them up! One place that stocks them regularly is the Peppercorn in Boulder.
Now THAT'S a sundae, at the Eiscafe Garda in Linz, Austria.
