Triplets Jill, Jessica and Jennifer Emich, also known as “The Blissful Sisters,” certainly know their way around healthy foods. The trio first opened the popular Trilogy Wine Bar in Boulder, which had a ten-year run before the sisters sold the spot in 2008. Their next venture into restaurants was Shine Restaurant, opened in 2011, which focuses on paleo, vegan and vegetarian farm-to-table comfort food made in a 100 percent gluten-free and GMO-free kitchen. The restaurant and gathering place also serves health elixirs and potions at the bar, as well as beers brewed on site, and it hosts a variety of live music and events.
Adding to their unique health-food brand, the siblings just released their first cookbook, Eat, Drink, Shine, which focuses on gluten-free and paleo-friendly options, all following the mantra that "food is the centerpiece of our lives." The sisters will be at the Boulder Book Store at 7:30 p.m. today to discuss that philosophy, as well as to sign copies of Eat, Drink, Shine. Vouchers to attend are $5 and are good for $5 off the featured book or any purchase today; get yours at the door or by calling 303-447-2074.
