5280 Magazine: “The Ultimate Foodie Tour of Boulder”

“Since 2007, Peggy Markel has acquired more than 160 passport stamps. And already this year—the 25th anniversary of her Boulder-based tourism company, Peggy Markel’s Culinary Adventures—she’s visited Sri Lanka and Argentina on her own and led clients through India, Spain, Morocco, and Italy. Her tours celebrate slow living and the sensual pleasures of shopping, fishing, farming, cooking, and eating with others (all capped off with sunset cocktails). But even though she’s dined in many of the world’s most fabulous culinary destinations, Boulder has a special appeal. “There’s always been an energy to Boulder,” Markel says. “Sharing the farms, markets, and talent that this city has attracted over the years starts a conversation that brings us back to the table, back to what’s basic in the best sense of the word.”

Join Markel on a fantasy exploration of her own home town—no passport necessary.”
