After a brief hiatus to help the Las Animas Grill in Trinidad punch up their breakfast/lunch offerings, Gordon is returning to his old stomping grounds. As Dinner Chef at La Plaza Inn, he’ll be bringing back many old favorites but he’s also looking forward to shaking things up a little and giving the folks of Walsenburg some new tastes and treats. Look for an opening in early-mid April!
Spray paint or marinara, it’s all the same to Gordon. Well, no, that’s not actually true. As a Chef of nearly half a century, he’s happy to keep the paint in his studio and the marinara in the kitchen, but they both do offer him a chance to create. Having been an artist longer than he’s been a cook, he admits to seeing the potential of pasta sauce on canvas but he prefers to serve it up on a bed of penne and finish it off with his special brand of love. Whether he’s to be found bent over the grill or standing at an easel, his work is always an experimental, experiential explosion of color and flavor.
