Executive Chef Kevin McCombs

Executive Chef Kevin McCombs

In the spring of 2003, my passion for cooking led me to Colorado to pursue a degree in the culinary arts. Located in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, my decision to attend the Colorado Mountain College Keystone Culinary Institute was not a difficult one. CMC’s hands-on, apprentice-style learning program taught me the skills necessary to build a career in the hospitality industry. With these opportunities and the abundance of outdoor recreation I was intent on making Colorado my home. I began my professional career as a sous chef at the historical Ski Tip Lodge after completing the apprenticeship program and receiving my degree. After two years of hard work refining my cuisine and sharpening my skills, I was promoted to Executive Chef. In this role, I took the Ski Tip to new levels, and the community recognized my work by voting the Lodge “Best Restaurant in Summit County” in both 2011, 2012 and 2013. My five years in a leadership role at the Ski Tip gave me the experience necessary to begin my new project in House Cured Culinary.

House Cured Culinary is led by myself, Executive Chef Kevin McCombs, and is intended to enhance your next event. The only thing I love more than cooking is good food, and it shows in my professionalism and dedication. From weddings to cookouts, my private chef services can help you enjoy more of your vacation. Let’s talk about what we can do to take your next gathering over the top!

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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!

    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.

    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!!

    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…
