Food has always played an important role in history – there’s the Last Supper, the discovery of America when Columbus was supposed to be scouting spices and the whole keeping civilization going thing – and 2009 was no exception. Tiger Woods picked up a Perkins waitress (among others), “For the Love of Ray J” showed us ice cream as we never want to see it again and Charlie Sheen’s alleged Christmas blow-out with his wife began at a dinner party.
Food is even more important to us Coloradans, as we need fuel for our bevy of outdoor activities and a sponge for our microbrews.
