Elsewhere in cookbook news, The Junior League of Denver’s 2009 cookbook Colorado Classique spent more than 10 weeks on the Denver Post’s best-seller list.
Released last June and priced at $29.95, the cookbook has sold more than 50,000 copies to date, making it the second most successful cookbook in the Denver League’s history after Colorado Colorè, which was published in 2002 and sold approximately 85,000 copies in its first year.
Illustrated with photographs of breathtaking Colorado landscapes by noted photographer John Fielder and mouth-watering food shots commissioned by internationally renowned photographer Rick Souders, the recipe collection includes several new components, among them the nutritional content of each item, pairings with wine and beer, and a focus on fresh ingredients. Each recipe was triple-tested by volunteers by The Junior League of Denver.
In addition to its appearance on the best-seller list, Colorado Classique has been covered by Denver View magazine. It will soon appear in Colorado Homes & Lifestyles, Aspen, and Applause.
It is available for sale on the League’s website, www.jld.org, and in retail stores such as Barnes & Noble and King Soopers, among others, and at the John Fielder Gallery.
