As some of you may know, Tundra and The Back Burner are based in Boulder, CO so we were especially pleased to learn that Boulder chef Hosea Rosenberg claimed first place on Wednesday’s finale of Top Chef: New York.
Rosenberg is the executive chef at Jax Fish House in Boulder. He graduated from the University of Colorado with a degree in engineering physics before pursuing his true dream in culinary arts. Rosenberg has worked with top chefs like Wolfgang Puck, Kevin Taylor, and Sean Yontz.
The Top Chef win garnered Rosenberg a $100,000 prize, and he is currently working on a food line with Whole Foods and a new restaurant is in the works as well.
Another Boulder chef, Melissa Harrison, was also a contestant on the show but was eliminated earlier in the season.
We would like to congratulate Hosea on his win and we look forward to enjoying his work in the Boulder area for years to come!
