the buzz





Colorado became a state in 1876, one-hundred years after the signing of the Declaration of Independence, thus earning it the nickname the Centennial State. The name Colorado comes from the Rio Colorado, which in Spanish means, “the red-colored river.” Colorado exists on the boundary between the Southwest, the Mountain States, and the Central Plains. It is the home of the Great Rocky Mountains, but Colorado also marks the spot where the magnificent peaks flatten out into the wide-open rangelands of the Great Plains. What was once bison country is now big beef country. Historically, the stews, roasts, and one-pot dishes that grew up on the plains of Colorado made use of wild game and freshwater fish, reflecting the diet of early prospectors, explorers, and Native Americans. Today, there is also a considerable and well-established organic food industry in Colorado; and on the Western Slope of the Rockies, an impressive wine industry has emerged.
