  1. We had Chef McCombs over for 2 nights while our family was skiing in Breckenridge. He was polite, professional and such a good cook. Everything was fabulous from hors d’oeuvres to his homemade desserts. He is a necessity for anyone looking to enjoy more of their vacation! He will definitely be a part of our next visit to the area.

  2. Chef Kevin came to our Breckenridge house for a special event. He exceeded our expectatins and we were so Impressed with Kevin and his fabulous culinary Creations.

    Thanks for making our event so Wonderful!! We highly recommend Chef Kevin.

  3. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! We recently took a ski trip to Copper Mountain with 7 other couples. We decided to hire Kevin instead of trying to make reservations at a crowded restaurant. It far exceeded our expectations! After a long day of skiing, we were able to shower and relax in the comfort of the home we rented, while Kevin made a wonderful variety of fresh appetizers. Our group enjoyed our own “happy hour” at home and then sat down to a delicious steak dinner! Kevin did an amazing job of meeting all of our requests, dietary needs, and it was very affordable. He covered EVERYTHING from buying the food, preparing it, and cleaning it up! AMAZING experience!

    We will definitely be hiring Kevin again! Thanks!

  4. We just got back from a business trip to Breckenridge and rented a house out there with 8 guys. We had Kevin come over and do his thing one night for us instead of going out and having to drive around town after some adult beverages.

    Kevin came highly recommended by the realtor we used, so we gave him a call to discuss the options. Kevin was incredibly professional on the phone and promptly emailed us several menu suggestions and followed up with another call to dial in the menu. On paper things looked great, now came the taste test the night of the dinner!!

    Let me tell you, Kevin did not disappoint! His culinary background and love of food shined through the entire night he was there! He came in a couple hours earlier while we were skiing and got set up with appetizers ready to go once we got back from skiing….the Spinach dip was absolutely amazing, as were the scallops wrapped in bacon among others!!

    Kev was a one man show out there, doing all the prep work, setting the table and clearing everything afterwards! Don’t know how he did it all and still provide dish after amazing dish to the group!! We started with a salad that had more ingredients than I can remember, followed by a great meal and TWO desserts!! It was tough to fit it all in, but we happily managed!!

    Not only was his cooking out of this world, but Kevin was incredibly friendly and great to be around! The guys appreciated all that he did and after the meal was done, we had him come back a couple nights later to do it all again!!

    The variety and cooking skills Kevin presented to us was really fantastic!! The costs were very reasonable and considering we had our own wine and beverages, you really can’t beat having Kevin come in and treat you to a 5-star meal at your own location!! We highly recommend you take a look at Kevin’s website and give him a call the next time you’re looking to stay in and have world class dining at your own house!

  5. Chef Kevin McCombs is FIRST CLASS all the way! He helped us celebrate my dad’s 70th birthday and the food and service were AMAZING! Kevin put together a menu to meet the likes of all and prepared an amazing 5 course meal in the comfort of our home. It was truly a night to remember! I HIGHLY recommend Chef Kevin and we will definitely be using him in the future!

  6. I have had the fortunate opportunity to know Kevin on a personal level and can say first hand he is one of the best chefs I have ever met. Everything from being at his house and having homemade Thanksgiving dinner, having the best fish and chips I have ever had prepared right in front of me, to seeing his expertise displayed at weddings and events, he never ceases to amaze me. Having food allergies myself he is accommodating to more dishes than I thought possible by having alternative ways to prepare and cook ensuring all his guests can enjoy.

    I would recommend Kevin for any event that needs the best of Summit County! Not only is he amazing at what he does, but easily the nicest guy I know, and a pleasure to be around.

  7. House Cured Culinary catered 2 meals while 3 families were staying together in Copper Mt. skiing for Spring Break. We wished we had catered more dinners that week!! The entire experience was seamless: from menus selection, pricing, preparation, and serving. We were so happy with the quality of the food and the amount was plenty for a house full of teenage boys and parents. It was truly a pleasure knowing that after a day of skiing we would be able to relax and have a wonderful dinner at home. Thank you Kevin and Jordan!!

  8. Chef Kevin truly played a large role in making our ski vacation a dream come true. After 3 exhausting days of skiing, Chef Kevin was there to refuel us each evening (which was no easy task with 15 adults and 12 children in our group)He prepared unique and delectable meals for both kids and adults. He takes pride in paying great attention to detail including any special diet needs/wants. He is very friendly, easy-going and professional. Wishing I had more Elk carpaccio right about now…

  9. During a family vacation in Breck, we selected Kevin to cater a special dinner to celebrate my son’s recent High School graduation.
    The catered dinner was by far the highlight of our trip. The prepared meal, service, cleanup, and discussions with Kevin were top notch. He is very talented and his passion for his profession shows in his work. A true restaurant experience was delivered right in the comfort of our house, and at a fraction of typical restaurant costs. Kevin was very attentive to everyone’s needs considering we had to accommodate guests from 3 to 73 years in age, and we had food allergies to contend with. Plus, from the first introduction, Kevin memorized everyone’s name, all 14 of us…and addressed everyone by name all night long. What I truly admired most is that during food prep, cooking, service and cleanup, he engaged everyone in meaningful conversations. Not only can he cook, but he’s a wealth of knowledge in culinary arts and the local area (including attractions).

    I highly recommend Kevin and hope to engage his services again the next time we’re back in the area.

  10. Chef Kevin McCombs catered a bachelor party weekend for a crew of friends and his meals were the talk of the trip. We had several larger guys, and all of us went to be with fully bellies and smiles on our faces. His meals were thoughtfully put together and amazingly delicious. He was happy to explain how and what he was doing whenever we were curious and give us tips that I have used in my own cooking. I (and I speak for all of us that were there) would highly recommend Kevin’s services.

  11. Many many thanks to Chef Kevin! We hired him for our daughter’s wedding weekend this past September, his appetizers, entrees, desserts AND
    personality were fantastic! Guests loved how welcoming and friendly he was.
    But, the food was spectacular. We trusted him with creating the breakfast, brunch, platters, rehearsal dinner and reception dinner and we were not disappointed.
    Accompanying Chef Kevin for the weekend was Chef Jordan who is just as talented and hardworking. Our daughter’s wedding weekend was made all the more special because of these two gentlemen.
    Our family highly recommends Chef Kevin and his staff.

  12. Chef Kevin catered our family’s event. His food was outstanding, and his service and efficiency were exceptional. Not only that, but he was kind, courteous, accommodating, and approachable. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to have their events catered!

  13. Hi Kevin – on this day of family gatherings, feasting and giving thanks, I want to send you my best wishes for a very blessed Thanksgiving. Thank you for making our family time together this summer so special! It was wonderful having you as part of our family for that week.

    Warmest Regards,

    Cherine

  14. Chef Kevin was AMAZING. Personable. talented and fit in with the family so well. We originally hired him for one night for two family’s over school break renting in Breck. We were so happy and so relaxed we hired him to come again another night.

    Food was OUTRAGEOUS and he is immaculate. We are in the restaurant/food businesses and are harsh critics. We could not say one negative thing. You Rock Kevin! I highly recommend Chef Kevin and we are excited to return next year and see him again, this time for three nights!
