What do We do?
We are the meeting place between outdoor adventure and fine food and drink. Canyons and Chefs is the integration of two seemingly different concepts: a private chef firm and a guided hiking outfitter.
– Private Chef Dining and Events
– Chef-Driven Guided Basecamping and Backpacking Tours
– day hiking and Chef-Styled dinner
We celebrate public lands, wilderness, geology, and hiking and pair that with a Michelin-starred restaurant.
What makes us Special?
There are many, many private chef and/or guided tour companies here in the American Southwest. They all have something to offer, and all say they’re the best. None of them do what we do.
We pair two worlds, doing what others simply cannot. Chef-driven outdoor experiences is not just our concept, it is our calling.
Simply put: fire, food and adventure have always been what humans crave, we’re just the company that’s making it cool again.

WHy Canyons and Chefs?
Professional Chefs, Professional Food
The core concept of what we do is to bring together the two worlds of profesional restarants and natural exploration. We acheive this through a farm-to-table concept for our menus, backed by a professional-kitchen on wheels that facilitates our cooking over the fire, in dutch ovens, and using smokers.
Our lead guides are geologists with at least a Bachelor of Science in geology from an accredited university. They are carefully chosen based upon their expertise in the area of your trip, and will ensure your every need is satisfied.
