The Red Lantern was a dream of mine for a very long time. I moved to Durango eight years ago with my son & our dogs, and we found the perfect location for absolutely EVERYTHING in our lives from skiing & kayaking, to 4x4, motocross, and backcountry camping.
I am a 1992 graduate of Johnson & Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island. I have been managing professional kitchens for more than twenty five years. The dishes presented here were gathered or invented, and then perfected over the course of my career. I am very proud to offer them to you. I have run the kitchens of four star hotels, local organic delis, oceanfront restaurants, high production catering companies, and upscale country clubs.
I have lived & cooked all across America. My recipes reflect the best of each region. My BBQ sauce is from a Greensboro, North Carolina gentleman who spent his life grilling over a pit of homemade charcoal - the charcoal recipe he would not share with me :) I learned to cook seafood in Ocean City, Maryland. My chowder recipe comes straight from the boat of a Long Island lobsterman. I inherited my "bowl & a spoon" cake recipes from my mother and grandmother, and then spent several years adjusting those Pennsylvania Dutch recipes to Durango altitude.
Please call me at (970) 903-1377. I would love to meet with you and discuss your event.
