“Cooking conscious means knowing where your food came from – at Frasca, that means working hand in hand with our farmers and local purveyors. It also means cooking simple – we try to keep our dishes simple and honoring of what’s in season.”

About Frasca: Frasca Food and Wine is the James Beard Award-winning restaurant in Boulder, Colorado. The creation of Master Sommelier Bobby Stuckey and Chef Lachlan Mackinnon-Patterson, their shared passion for Friulano cuisine and fine wine is reflected in the exquisitely prepared fare and a comprehensive wine list boasting over 200 varieties.

Historically found throughout Friuli, frascas were friendly and informal gathering places, a destination for farmers, friends, and families to share a meal and a bottle of wine. Identified by a tree branch hanging over a doorway portal, they were a symbol of local farm cuisine, wine, and warm hospitality. As the harvest came to a close, the branch would wither and change colors to indicate the end of the season. The frascas would then close their doors until the next year.

Now headed into its 15th year, Frasca Food and Wine still aims to honor the original frascas of Friuli-Venezia Giulia with world-class hospitality.
