This Thursday’s Perfect Pair- Salt Bistro and Bookcliff Vineyard

If you haven’t had a chance to experience Bradford Heap’s much buzzed about fare at Colterra or SALT Bistro, you should move that experience to the top of your Boulder must-do list. For those of you that have, this Thursday’s event at Bookcliff Vineyards offers a unique opportunity to explore a custom designed five-course menu of Bradford’s creations at a uniquely intimate venue alongside perfectly paired wines produced locally, right here in Colorado.

Chef Heap is well known for his commitment to providing fresh, locally-sourced non-GMO ingredients and prides himself on finding the intrinsic essence in his main ingredients and expressing those flavors, much to his diner’s delight.
