Hotel Boulderado Holiday (Gluten Free) Tea!

I absolutely love holiday events, christmas lights, the music, family dinners etc... and this month I've been having an exceptionally hard time being away from Santa Fe (I'm counting down the hours). To make up for my slight unhappiness I was determined to experience some wonderful holiday events in Denver and Boulder. Well...it was a fabulous weekend! The professor and I had an evening of beautiful entertainment at Colorado Ballet's the Nutcracker.  The next day we devoured tea sandwiches, scones, cookies, tea and champagne at the Hotel Boulderado. I was able to have a gluten free meal that was almost identical to everybody else. 

First Course
Gluten-Free Orange-Cranberry Scones with English Double Devon Cream OR Fresh Fruit PlateTea Sandwiches
Boulderado Egg Salad with Fresh Watercress on Gluten-Free Bread
Black Bean Hummus with Cilantro, Roasted Peppers, and Fresh Cotija Cheese on Corn Tortilla Chips
Roma Tomatoes Stuffed with Tarragon Chicken Salad and Topped with Pecans
Atlantic Smoked Salmon with Lemon-Caper Butter and Red Onion Relish on Gluten-Free Bread
Tea Desserts
White and Dark Chocolate Dipped Strawberries
Chocolate Truffles
Mini Assorted Gluten-Free Pastries and Sweets

After the sugar high wore off, we strolled along Pearl Street to people watch and walk off some calories. I would highly recommend having tea at the Boulderado Hotel. The staff was extremely helpful, polite and careful in preparing a meal that was safe to eat and tasted really good! Cheers!
