Good Morning Friends of Cured,
Happy December! We hope you all had an utterly delicious Thanksgiving and are recovering from the bevy of food, wine, family and friends. Holden very much enjoyed his first Thanksgiving and has decided that, so far, that a day devoted entirelyto eating is hands down his favorite holiday. Guess the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree! 😉
Christmas is only 23 days, which means that you likely have a long list of people, and presents to take care of in the next 3 weeks. For us, the holidays are all about sharing time and love with friends and family and, at least in our book, there is no better way to do this then over a shared meal and bottle of wine. Plus, it just so happens that here at Cured, we love little more then scheming and crafting the most delicious of gifts, designed to bring you, and the ones you love, together for this magical season. So, after Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday, we are creating a new shopping holiday, and thus are excited to introduce, Gift Box Tuesday!!
The Cured Gift Box, because nothing says ‘I love you’ like meat and cheese.
Eating is an adventure. We travel to destinations near and far in search of a new meal, a new experience. Food can tell a story and can transport you to a place, a time, a bite, a memory. Whether it’s a tour of Colorado or a trip around the world, the beauty of food is its ability to inspire. So for this holiday season, give someone a trip, an adventure, if only for a bite or two.
The Coloradan: $75
Living in Colorado we are already the envy of many. 300 days of sunshine a year, miles of trails to explore, mountains to conquer, and countless close-to-home escapes. Add a cornucopia of incredible artisanal producers to the mix and it’s hard to imagine a better place to call home.
The American All Stars: $100
Over the last 10 years, America has experienced a surge in artisanal producers, creating products to rival and beat out the best European staples. This box is filled with all our favorite goodies from here in the good ol’ US of A.

In other news, this Thursday we are excited to be part of a special shopping event with our friends just down the street at Angie Star. Swing by from 4-6 pm for a glass of bubbles, a bite or two…or ten…of cheese and the opportunity to pursue some beautiful jewelry, and maybe, just maybe, even win a pair of diamond earrings!!
Angie Star Jewelry – 1807 Pearl Street, Thursday December 4th, 4-6 pm.
Finally, now that you have likely run out of leftovers, we have a bevy of dinners we are making up this week, the perfect solution for those of you who are cooked out after Thanksgiving. For this week’s Wednesday Night Pasta, Brad is whipping up Tuscan White Bean, Sage, and Prosciutto Cappelletti. Thursday night we have our freshly roasted chickens and duck fat mashed potatoes, and then this Friday, we have our bi-monthly Friday Night Feast. Becca will be spending the day in the kitchen, making Chicken and Dumplings. Personally, Holden cannot wait! Dinner includes: Slow cooked chicken in rich broth with seasonal vegetables and plump dumplings, a Collard Greens Gratin (collard greens baked in a mornay sauce topped with crisp prosciutto and bread crumbs) and a Smoked Sweet Potato Pie with Cinnamon Dusted Meringue Topping for dessert. Dinner for two costs $38 and will be hot out of the oven at 5:30.
Pheww….I apologize for the novella quality of this newsletter. There is just so much deliciousness to share this time of year!! I hope I didn’t bore you all to tears, or to hunger pains from all the talk of mouthwatering bites…
With that, we will bid you farewell, have a wonderful start to your December, and we look forward to seeing you in the shop soon!
Will + Coral
