Squash Soup at Restaurant Kelly Liken
The Dish: Spiced rum, spiked acorn squash soup
The Sitch: Adorned by gorgonzola and toasted pecans for optimal tastiness comes this salaciously seasonal soup from notable local veggie sorceress, Kelly Liken (a former 'Top Chef' cheftestant). Other than a sprinkling of spiced rum, the squash in this dish comes from Munson Farms in Boulder, Colorado -- a beloved 100-acre spread for over three decades. Liken once showed Al Roker how to make this dish on 'The Today Show.'
Other Veggies: Honey crisp apple and celery and a side dish with caramelized Brussels sprout leaves and plump golden raisins.
