Executive Chef, Cory Untch

Today, we’re taking you behind the scenes to meet our Executive Chef, Cory Untch, to learn how food plays a role in making our guests’ visits an experience they’ll never forget.  

Innovative Approach

With an impressive background in many 5-star hotels across the country, Cory was well-suited to lead the culinary team at C Lazy U. As a strong believer in farm-to-table offerings, using local purveyors, and developing health-minded menus, Cory perfectly matches the ranch’s culinary approach. His ability to put unique twists on some recognized staples means he can delight even the pickiest of eaters while creating a fabulous service experience.  

Exploring C Lazy U Through Food 

One of the reasons guests love C Lazy U is that they get to celebrate the Great American West with all the luxury and comfort of modernity. To create a unified and cohesive experience, Cory strives to explore C Lazy U through the menus he creates. By developing relationships with local farmers and vendors, Cory is able to tell the story of Colorado and the West using the food he cooks, and alters the menu to accommodate our changing seasons. As a result, guests can experience the best of Colorado cuisine, year-round.  

More Than A Meal 

Since our food is served family-style, mealtimes give our guests the opportunity to create lasting friendships with other guests. Cory’s creations perfectly compliment this goal, and he encourages his team to view food not just as a meal, but an interaction. By preparing unique dishes that set the stage for connection and conversation, Cory’s team encourages guests to engage each of their senses and create unforgettable memories around the table.

From the Horse's Mouth

What a fabulous long weekend we had. From the moment we arrive(earlier than expected) and were warmly greeted and taken to our lovely well-appointed cabin, to the moment we left 3 days later we were constantly thrilled by gracious service, professionalism, alot of fun and perhaps most importantly well trained horses, wonderful trail rides, and fantastic staff.
