I’ve been on holiday near Denver the past few weeks, and while it’s nice to spend some time sampling all of my favorite foods that I miss while living in Spain (mainly my dad’s barbecue and dill pickles), by the end of each trip I almost always find myself yearning once again for the wonderful flavors and gastronomy of Spain that I have come to know and love.
Fortunately, nowadays Spanish food is easy to come by in the United States and other corners of the globe. And while this has long been true in foodie hubs and big cities like New York, the Spanish food craze has slowly inched its way west and is now firmly embedded in this smaller, but quickly growing enclave at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. In fact, according to the US Census Bureau, Denver is the second fastest growing city in the United States right now, which can only be good news for the Spanish food market.
