About Chef Paul

My passion for food began at a very early age through the simple heartfelt connection I found cooking with my father and grandmother in Buffalo, New York. My love for cooking continued to grow and I started my formal culinary career at the age of 19.  I began classical training under some of the greatest chefs in the New York area and quickly worked my way up through the industry. I eventually made my way to Boulder, Colorado, a mecca of great culinary cuisine which has a strong locally sourced, organic appeal. Here I worked for the acclaimed farm-to-table restaurant The Kitchen. Over my 8 year tenure at The Kitchen,  I started as Chef de Partie and worked my way up to Chef de Cuisine.  As the head Chef I strengthened existing relationships and developed new ones with many local farmers and purveyors of Colorado in order to source the freshest, purest and best tasting ingredients possible. Highlighting the quality of those ingredients in simple yet nuanced ways was, and still is, the key to my continued success as a chef. Supporting local agriculture, organic farmers, and earth-friendly grassroots movements remains the focus of my philosophy to this day.
