Chef Tom Coohill

Chef Tom began his love affair with French cuisine at L’Auberge des Champs in Kentucky before training under master chefs at the Michelin Guide three-star L’Oustau de Baumanière in France, the Mobil five-star Le Francais in Illinois, and the fabled Ma Maison in Los Angeles. In 1992, he went on to open Ciboulette in Atlanta, a nationally acclaimed modern French restaurant that was ranked in the top 10 by Condé Nast and in the top 25 nationwide by Esquire

Since bringing his expertise to Colorado, Chef Tom has been busy in the best culinary sense, hosting the Taste of Iceland in Denver, and serving as a guest chef at the 2014 Food and Fun Festival in Reykjavík, Iceland. He is a regular participant in Aspen Food and Wine, and has been repeatedly invited to be a part of the “Table at The Lodge Guest Chef Series” at The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park. In August 2017, Tom was a featured chef at the 10th annual Sabor Barranquilla gastronomic festival in Barranquilla, Colombia, where he demonstrated cooking techniques and participated in culinary forums using his recipes and the Colombian region's ingredients.

Tom was also a key player in the 2017 Plate of Union Farm Bill Summit, where he joined an elite group of chefs tasked with addressing the country's hunger issues through a series of conferences and meetings with members of Congress in Washington, D.C., with a primary focus on the critical goal of revamping the food labeling system.
