Executive Chef Chris Teigland

Having left Chicago, moving to Denver, Chef Chris Teigland initially connected with Balistreri Vineyards as a server. Seeing his desire for food and the sheer talent pouring out of this young man, Chris began working in the kitchen under the instruction of Chef Hosea Rosenberg. He quickly rose to Executive Chef, where Chris soon developed his own style; a marriage of Asian and Italian cuisine which we will see in his showcased menu!

This passion and ambitious style is all under the umbrella of influence his mother Gloria, a pastry chef, set upon him years ago. Growing up cooking with mom, Chris developed a love and humbling approach to food. “Food is art to me, and its the best form of art. I can see it, I can hear it, feel it, smell it and I can taste it,” Chris said; the all-encompassing qualities this medium brings, is the fuel that drives his continued creative exploration into food. We are so grateful and proud to have Chris apart of our team, and we are excited for you to experience his art!
