TASTE BUDS - ELEVATED
Pagosa Culinary was conceived out of the love of food, nurtured through years of cooking by Chef Jess, and raised on Tin Canyon Farm where it all started.
From basic skills and certificate programs to specialty pasta classes, regional cuisine dinner parties, and farm-to-table experiences, Pagosa Culinary aims to ignite the passion for food and cooking in everyone.
A portion of all profits is donated to Food Bank of the Rockies, No Kid Hungry, and other local organizations that help combat food insecurity.
ABOUT CHEF JESS
