A Delice-ous recipe at Tuesday market’s cooking demonstration

Delicious Orchards' Big B's Juices are available every Tuesday at Glenwood's Downtown Market.

As you drive, bike or walk by the corner of Ninth and Grand Avenue today between 4 p.m. and dusk, the scent of roasted chilies, garlic cooking and freshly picked apples will stop you in your tracks. Borden’s organic farms is roasting chilies, the chefs at the cooking demonstration are making everyone hungry with the aroma of sauteing garlic, mushrooms and fresh herbs, and it’s time for apples.

Cynthia Vodopich will be our chef this week at the market. Cynthia was born into a job at The Delice Pastry Shop in Aspen. Her father, Walter Huber, put his skills as a Swiss-trained pastry chef to work there for more than two decades. In 1979, the Huber family and the restaurant moved to Glenwood Springs, where the tradition of fine European pastries and simple lunches continued for another 28 years.

Now the Delice Recipe and Scrapbook is available to keep the recipes and memories of the Delice Restaurant alive. Helping people believe that they really can prepare this food at home has become Cynthia’s passion. The most requested recipe in the cookbook is the chili recipe. Cynthia will be preparing the chili for this week’s cooking demonstration. Cynthia will be in the cooking demo tent starting at 4 p.m. signing copies of The Delice Cookbook, and the cooking demonstration will begin at 6 p.m.

The perfect drink with your chili this fall should be Delicious Orchards’ fresh Big B’s apple cider. Jeff Schwartz’s Delicious Orchards, in Hotchkiss, is a family run business dedicated to quality foods, sustainable agriculture and community enrichment. Big B’s juices are the sweetest local fruits pressed into the region’s most delicious organic juices. Jeff believes that, in two weeks, this year’s apple crop will be ready to be pressed for cider. He hopes to bring a press to the market for sampling the very freshest cider. This week at the market several other of Big B’s juices will be available under the Delicious Orchards tent.

Since 1996, The Lone Pine Bluegrass Band has been keeping the bluegrass tradition alive in the Roaring Fork Valley. The group plays not only bluegrass music from the early 20th century by artists such as Bill Monroe, the Stanley Brothers and Flatt and Scruggs, but also contemporary bluegrass from the 21st century. Driving music and great harmonies will come from the band’s members, Dave Notor, Trevor Mountjoy, Kory Krahl, Steve Johnson and Randy Utterback. This week’s music is sponsored by the Glenwood Springs Mall.

Another artist has joined the market for the last five weeks of the season. J. Michael Chandler began producing pottery in the early ’70s, first in Crested Butte and then in Aspen. He sold his pottery in stores on the Western Slope and did his first Carbondale Mountain Fair in 1975. Michael began making prints in the late ’90s. Michael is showing a wide range of prints with great depth of color in his booth. He is offering the prints at bargain prices through the Sept. 29 market.

Stop by Glenwood’s Downtown Market booth to take a look at our list of sponsors for this year. We want to thank them for helping bring local musical and artistic talent, chefs and regional sustainable produce and food to our downtown every Tuesday.

See you on Tuesday.
