Some people search for the perfect lipstick, jeans, mate, or crime, but isn’t everyone hoping to find the perfect slice of pizza? Now there is another place you can look; Walsenburg Colorado. ONE Table is at 512 Main St. on the East side of the street; the (mostly) local food establishment also recently added clean energy to the menu.
Good food is not a luxury just for the upper-crust, and doesn’t have to be fancy; it can be as simple as a rich, hearty soup that warms you to the core on a chilly day; a fresh, crisp salad from the farm down the street and include the savoriness of high-octane bread. Bread made the way is used to be made with heritage grains and real starter. For those intolerant of modern baking, einkorn wheat makes up the pizza dough, bread and desserts that indulge your sweet tooth even though these delicacies are more digestible and free of sugar. Crunchy-veggie fans will delight to find all vegetables slightly undercooked, accentuating the emphasis on freshness.
Now back to the pizza; a hearty, nutty flavored einkorn crust provides a foundation for home-made sauces both white, red and pesto green; unusual toppings like squash, soft goat cheese, sliced tomatoes and fresh rosemary or basil, and you can select the typical; peppers, onions, mushrooms and whatever the chef can pull from the garden that day that exude bold flavors and add both sweetness and fire.
The welcoming atmosphere is a stark, almost shocking contrast to the history of the building that housed the Blue Rooster; “best place to have a beer bottle broken over your head,” and the local food focused-farm-to-table trend that has swept the nation and has finally migrated to ‘Orphan’ County to inhabit the 512 Main Street location.
