Savory Palette Gourmet Retreats


A champagne toast in the forest
"Here's to succulent days and juicy nights!"
Sibyl's toast, 1958

Tuck your favorite chef's knife and apron in an overnight bag and leave city cares behind on your canyon drive between Boulder and Estes Park. Destination? A relaxed, warm kitchen. In a forest. On a creek. Deer, squirrel, and nuthatch will be very curious about what you are up to. Discover new culinary techniques with your experienced guide. She has cooked with and for all manner of folk, from presidential chef to glacier camps.

Enjoy the fruits (and vegetables) of your labor over candlelight and wine in a festive, private setting. Then the difficult decision comes. Should you soak in the starlit hot tub on the sandstone terrace or read by the fire in your private lounge? Trundle to bed and bath, knowing that a full Colorado breakfast will be waiting in the morning.
