Aphrodisiacs: Love & Food in Colorado

What’s not to love about food and love and the fabulous relationship that they have had since the beginning of time and continue to have today.

Executive Chef, Christian Apetz of the 8100 Moutainside Bar and Grill at Beaver Creek Park Hyatt has an aphrodisiac inspired menu for the month of February where guests can indulge in local and love inducing bites together.  On the menu are jumbo scallops with vanilla candied blood oranges and fried parsnips, smoked duck breast with greens, tapenade, goat cheese and an almond brittle, elk carpaccio with truffles, arugula, champagne grapefruit and radishes, a roasted beet salad with peppered goat cheese, pistachio pesto and greens, halibut with pimento parmesan risotto, beef fillet with whipped yukon potatoes, roasted broccolini and a garlic tomato jam, chicken with hearbed spaetzle, braised red cabbage and a cherry glaze, and boca negra or buttermilk panna cotta among other things.

If you can’t make it slope side in February you don’t have to worry because on any given day the setting and the menu are pretty cozy and romantic this time of year.

For Valentine’s Day ideas in other cities or cocktails at home try out cocktails in Charlotte, NC, cocktails in Colorado Springs, romance in Chicago, pair wine and chocolate in NYC or head to Rhode Island for some Viking Romance.
