"When I was an undergraduate at Columbia in NY I was crazy about a hamburger made at the chain Prexy's .Their first store was near the college at 115 St. and Broadway and then moved on to other locations in the city. We are talking '50s and '60s. There are no Prexy's left now, but many of us on the internet have been looking for the original recipe, unfortunately without success. There was simply no hamburger as good. Would you have any input?"
The Breckenridge Brewery story begins in 1990, when homebrewer Richard Squire opened the third (!) craft brewery in Colorado in the popular ski town of Breckenridge. The beers the small brewery served to locals and skiers were an immediate hit and in 1992 Breckenridge expanded into the Denver market, opening a bottling facility in a then-neglected part of downtown. A few years later, Coors Field baseball stadium was built on an adjacent lot, and the neighborhood's fortunes began to change for the better.
In 2003, Jeff Crabtree started dabbling in homebrewing. Shortly after, the Union Colony Brewery—the only brewery in the industrial farm community of Greeley, Colorado—went out of business. Bitten by the brewing bug, Jeff got a loan and snapped up Union's brewing equipment. But Jeff hedged his bets and took a job in the corporate world, and started Crabtree Brewing as a side project in a gritty corner of Greeley. For the first few years he focused on brewing the beers he thought the local community would want. Progress was slow, and some frustration followed. The tipping point came when Jeff decided to work full time at the brewery, and brew only the beers that he wanted to.

Richard Rosendale, executive chef of The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia, didn't know he would win the Bocuse d'Or USA finals on Sunday, but he imagined it.

Rosendale put the magnet on his stove, glancing at it as he cooked his chicken and fish dishes for the judges.
