Three words: Comfort food here!
Comfort food at Fooducopia features Chef Richard’s heartwarming pot roast
This winter, Colorado has seen its fair share of snow and ice. With the winter weather hitting down on us, now is the best time to venture out and enjoy comfort food for dinner at organic restaurant Fooducopia.
I think it is safe to say that comfort food comes in all shapes and sizes. But the end point is the same. When we enjoy the meal there is a comfort that we experience unlike any other meal.
Comfort food can be defined as food that provides consolation and is sometimes, if not always, associated with childhood or home cooking.
My earliest memories of my mom’s comfort food begins with oxtail stew. Oxtail for those of you who don’t know comes from the tail of the cow. The tail is skinned and cut into sections. The bonus is that each section has marrow in the center. This is where the memories kick into overdrive for me. I remember the stew simmering on the stove and my dad could never wait. He would take a piece and share the marrow with me.
In fact, my dad was the first to educate me on how unbelievably healthy bone marrow is—especially when it comes to protein.
Here at Fooducopia, Executive Chef Richard Glover has tapped these yearnings for comfort food in Denver. This month’s Centerpiece Menu for dinner features a slow cooked pot roast with house made cranberry chipotle BBQ sauce and roasted carrots that will prompt you to call your mom and tell her that you love and miss her cooking.
So be sure to make a reservation to Fooducopia this month to enjoy a meal that is as close to home as they come—comfort food.
