About Us

EDIBLE SOUTHWEST COLORADO is a community-based quarterly publication that promotes the abundance of local foods, season by season. Our mission is to transform the way our community shops for, cooks, eats and relates to the food that is grown and produced from Durango to Telluride and from Cortez to Pagosa. We celebrate local, sustainable, seasonal, authentic foods and culinary traditions. We are about the food of Southwest Colorado and the people who grow it, ranch it, bake it and brew it … hunt it, distill it, gather it and cook it. We are real stories told by experienced storytellers. We are real recipes shared by local chef’s and home cooks.

Through our publication, website, and events, we connect consumers with local growers, retailers, chefs and food artisans—enabling those relationships to grow and thrive in a mutually beneficial, healthful and economically viable way. The fruits, vegetables, fish, poultry, cheese and other artisanally produced foods they bring to the table are what make our community an interesting and healthy place to live.

Edible Southwest Colorado is for people who are interested in:

  • Eating and growing delicious, locally grown, seasonal foods
  • Getting to know the people who grow, produce, cook, sell and serve those foods
  • Discovering great dining, day trips, wines and winemakers, beer makers and food events and festivals, books to read and recipes to try
