Chef at Your Steps
I was born and raised in Fort Collins, Co. Growing up I remember waking up at 5 a.m. every weekend with my grandfather to butcher the freshly slaughtered pig for that evenings wedding order of carnitas and chicharrones. I remember the smell of the burning wood underneath the cauldron and the sound of my grandfather sharpening the knives. That's where my love for cooking began, I'm a self taught chef with over 10 years of experience cooking a wide range of foods. I have a very good understanding of local and seasonal products as well as foraging from the land. I love creating multi course menus with wine, beer or cocktail pairings. In my free time I enjoy fishing and hiking with my son. I believe I have come a long way from working with my grandfather. But those deep roots are what keep me connected to excellent food, service and business,
A dedicated professional with knowledge, skills and experience available to you, so lets talk about what's on the menu!

Chef Mario came to our house to cook us a beautiful and special birthday meal. All three courses were elegant, flavorful, and SO incredibly delicious!!! The entire process of meeting Mario and building the menu together off of his recommendations was seamless and well executed. His estimated cooking times were right on point, and he left out kitchen spotless (after searing a prime rib no less!) when he finished. Chef Mario was professional, kind, patient and an amazing representation of an in home personal chef. Thank you Mario!
