How did Blooming Beets Kitchen come about 

Group7.jpg

Hi. My name is Iva (pronounced Eva) Paleckova, and I'm the one you see cooking just about all the time. Blooming Beets Kitchen was a brainchild of me and my husband.

 

The Why 

 

Why did we open Blooming Beets? Well - in short, we wanted to create a place where you can eat anything off the menu. A place where gluten-free isn't a buzzword. A place that goes far beyond gluten-free.

 

I once was a junk food eater, too. One living a corporate life, staring at a computer all day, while at the same time being a chronic over-exerciser. One day I got inspired, changed the way I lived and ate, and decided to take the leap and quit my cozy corporate job to dedicate my life to doing right by others when it comes to eating well. 

 

 

Sourcing  

 

Our restaurant is very special in so any ways. Our ingredients are perfect. We won't use any processed seed oils, grains, processed sugar and we are very choosy when it comes to dairy. We limit it to butter and use it only in a couple dishes where avocado oil, olive oil or coconut oil just won't do. 

 

Our vegetables are mostly organic. Ever since we opened, we've been working with a local supplier named Growers Organic from Boulder, as well as local farms in the summer, on sourcing our vegetables. 

 

Our meat sourcing is very important to us. We get a vast majority of our meat from Colorado Sustainable Farms. They take a great care of their animals (beef is 100% grass fed, everything else is pastured) and Casey, the owner, won't compromise on his beliefs.

 

 

Our team

 

We are a good team of people that deeply care about each other. Each of us works hard day in and day out, and over the first year we have grown to be a family. We also have a very unique approach; our servers know how to cook, and cooks know how to serve. It's very typical for our staff to spend 50% of their week cooking and 50% of the week serving. When they talk to you about food, they know what they are talking about.
