 Paul Reilly

   
 Beaver Creek Winter Culinary Weekend Paul C. Reilly is the co-owner/executive chef of beast+bottle, a rustic American craft restaurant in Denver centered on local, farm-focused food, which he co-owns with sister Aileen V. Reilly. Since opening in 2013, beast + bottle has earned multiple accolades, inclusions on “best restaurant” lists and nods to its well-rounded beverage program.  In early 2016, Paul and Aileen will open Coperta, a restaurant and bar celebrating the culinary traditions and food of Rome and Southern Italy, in Denver's Uptown neighborhood.

Drawing from his upbringing in New York’s lush Hudson Valley, Paul is committed to sourcing only the highest quality ingredients.

Brandon Foster

   
 Beaver Creek Winter Culinary Weekend Brandon Foster began his life in the kitchen at The Best Western in Frisco, Colorado, almost 16 years ago. While the Best Western was a great place to learn the fundamentals, Brandon identified early on a passion for ingredients and a drive to learn technique. This passion and drive lead him down the mountain to Denver, where, with enough skill, and a bit of luck, he landed a line cook position with mentor and friend, Chef  Tyler Wiard. Brandon was fortunate enough to work with Tyler in two of Denver’s most fondly remembered restaurants, The Fourth Story, and Mel’s. After learning Tyler’s approach to food, and philosophies on cooking, Foster joined the crew at Denver’s Vesta Dipping Grill in 2005 as a line cook.  Brandon was quickly promoted to Sous Chef, and after 5 years working under Chefs Matt Selby and Wade Kirwan, he was promoted to Executive Chef.  As Executive Chef, Foster has had the opportunity to focus his food interests back to the roots of cooking, through charcuterie and seasonal produce such as morel mushrooms, ramps, and root vegetables. His mantra has become “have respect for the ingredients…the quality of your product should be of the utmost importance.”  While at Vesta, Brandon has been able to take advantage of incredible opportunities such as a weeklong stages at Oliveto in Oakland, CA with Chef Paul Canales,  and at Cypress in Charleston, SC with charcuterie master Craig Deihl. Ultimately, Chef Foster’s career highlights are centered on the many community driven events that his position at Vesta allows him to take an active role in, such as 50 Top Denver, Plates For The Peak, Denver Harvest Week, and numerous other local and national, charitable and growth based events.  Outside of the kitchen, Chef Foster enjoys spending time with his wife Larissa and daughters Amelia and Ella. His hobbies include skiing, camping, golf and eating.
