A Coloardo family enjoys the bounty of their labor

Out on their farm ― Pastures of Plenty, near Longmont, Colorado ― Lyle Davis, his wife, Sylvia Tawse, and their four children dine together more often than city families perhaps. Davis, farmer and chief cook, has been influenced by the food-friendly cultures of France, Italy, and Greece. He cooks seasonally and simply, usually in a Mediterranean style, using many foods the farm produces. As a result, the Davis clan has been reared on a broad spectrum of flavors and international influences that have brought an adventurous spirit to the rituals of dining.
