vail private chef and catering gourmet food

“Our clients are coming to a place where, within 150 miles, we have some of the best game, beef, pork and poultry in the country, as well as artisan cheese makers and amazing heirloom organic produce growers,” said Harrison, who calls the Vail Valley home. “We even use Colorado-bred Wagyu beef raised just minutes away, and early clients are raving about this and the other spectacular ingredients they are able to enjoy here in the Rocky Mountain region.”

Regardless of the occasion, Red Maple’s menu pays homage to “The Rocky Mountains Reimagined,” as Harrison has long loved to put his creative spin on the rich bounty of products available in Vail Valley. His signature selections include Colorado Striped Bass with Sweet Corn and Lemongrass Pudding, Great Plains Bison and Ricotta Meatballs with Basil Pomodoro, Rosen Farms Lamb Ramen, Boulder-Farmed Berkshire Pork Porchetta with Truffled Carolina BBQ Sauce, and High Altitude Lasagna with Venison, Bison, Heritage Breed Pork and Three Colorado Cheeses.

Red Maple Catering serves groups from four to four thousand (give or take), in Vail, Beaver Creek, Edwards and beyond, and in many different formats. Harrison and his team can provide everything “in” -- as an in-home private chef experience preparing and serving either a plated or family style sit-down breakfast, lunch and/or dinner. The company also caters events such as après-ski receptions with passed hors d’oeuvres, or private parties and celebrations. Additionally, Red Maple can prepare meals or menu items for drop-off or delivery to a client’s door.
