DENVER (CBS4) – The new USS Colorado submarine is getting ready for action and that has the crew brushing up on their cooking skills.
Two crew members took cooking lessons at the Brown Palace on Wednesday where they learned some traditional Colorado dishes.
They learned how to make Rocky Mountain trout and the Denver omelet.
“I know Colorado loves their peppers very much, and chili — green chili is one of the things I’ve seen a lot,” said Seaman Oyedolapo Owory, a culinary specialist.
The cooks will also learn recipes at the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs and the Four Seasons in Vail.
The USS Colorado should go into service later this year. It’s the fourth Navy ship to bear the name of the State of Colorado since 1857.
