Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Imagine being in an endless meadow high in the mountains, the shadows of a few clouds dancing with the deep green of the ground. You reach into your quaint napsack for a bite (you MUST keep up those energy levels on wildflower hikes, lest you miss the Asteraceae on your right) and out comes a...PB and J sandwich?

Definitely not a great fit for the setting. And so the people at Applause!, a fundraising committee for the Breckenridge Music Festival, are working on a Summit County cookbook, slated for publication in June 2010.

In the meantime, they're looking for suggestions. "Entertaining! Summit Style will offer recipes for an assortment of special experiences in keeping with our active lifestyle, ranging from a winter skier's weekend, to a 'Mud Season' party, to a summer wildflower hike, to a bike outing on mountain trails in the fall," explains Applause's Genia Gallagher. "We are looking for formal as well as family-type recipes, like elegant cocktail parties for an opening night concert."

If you have any great ideas for Summit County cuisine -- which Gallagher describes as "one that highlights our active lifestyle and one that is centered around the outdoors, family and friends" -- then e-mail her at ggg1929@msn.com.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
