ASPEN – Aspen Meadows Resort announced this week the hiring of Todd Slossberg at its executive chef.
Slossberg will oversee all food and beverage needs at the resort including conferences, special events at the Doerr-Hosier Center and the Meadows’ Plato’s Restaurant.
“We’re extremely excited to have Chef Slossberg join our team. His sophisticated style will complement Aspen Meadows Resort perfectly,” said Tom Cox, general manager of Aspen Meadows Resort, in a statement.
Slossberg has lived in the Aspen area for the past 20 years. He earned two consecutive nominations from the James Beard Foundation for “Best Chef in the Southwest.”
He attended the Culinary Institute of America, from which he graduated with honors. He came to the Aspen area in the late 1980s and worked at the Hotel Jerome for more than 15 years.
His work at the Jerome drew him recognition from such publications as Bon Appetit, Gourmet and Food + Wine, and he also earned the hotel the “Ivy Award” from Restaurants and Institutions magazine in 2005. Prior to coming to Aspen Meadows, Slossberg owned and operated a restaurant and catering firm in Basalt, Crave Kitchen and Catering.
