By Nadia Mishkin CURED’S FLOOD COMMEMORATION SANDWICH Cured, “Boulder’s premiere cheese, charcuterie, wine and artisanal provisions market,” is teaming up with local companies to create a Colorado super-sandwich. And while the merits of the Colorado super-sandwich are self-evident, there’s more to it than just location and superior ingredients: a good cause. The sandwich will benefit local farmers by raising awareness and money for those impacted by last September’s flood. Cured searched Colorado far and wide to create a sandwich they call the “PLT,” made of 100 percent homegrown ingredients — Tender Belly Ham in a house made Porchetta, Cure Farm Egg Aioli, Avalanche Cheese Company’s Cabra Blanca Cheese, BonaVida Growers’ Tomatoes, and Oxford Gardens Summer Lettuce mix. This special sandwich is being sold at the special price of $10 and 10 percent of each one purchased will be returned to Oxford Gardens and BonaVida Growers, who were hit especially hard by the 2013 floods.
