    Justin Goerich of Zolo Grill

    Justin Goerich Boulder ChefJustin Goerich set his sights on a career in the culinary arts early on, while working at La Chaumiere in his hometown of Pinewood Springs, Colorado.

    After attending the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York, he honed his craft at the famous Flagstaff House in Boulder and at the Mashomack Fish and Game Reserve in Duchess County, New York. He came back home once and for all to join the Big Red F family, first at Jax Fish House and now at Zolo Grill.

    As a chef, Justin blends his decade-plus of culinary experience into seasonal menus full of creative, flavorful Southwestern dishes. When he’s not in the kitchen, you’ll find Justin enjoying the outdoors with his family, biking, snowboarding, fishing, hiking, running, canoeing, camping and, most often, chopping wood to heat his home.

    My Perfect Day in Boulder: 
    • My day starts at 5am every morning with an intense workout.
    • I cook breakfast with my beautiful wife and handsome little boy. When we do cook at home we do it right — local whenever possible.
    • When the Boulder Farmers Market is in full swing, we stop by sometimes twice a week.
    • Sundays are my favorite day of the week. I get to spend it with my family.
    • Hike with my son and dog Robo to the top of a mountain and enjoy lunch. When I hike, I always pack a lunch and many survival tools. We can go on very long hikes out in the woods. Button Rock Trail, Lyon’s Gulch, and Rocky Mountain National Park are some of our favorites.
    • I prepare a home-cooked, fine-dining meal at home. Every day at home has some sort of firewood work to be done to keep my house warm in the winter. I consider myself a mountain-man chef. I work in Boulder and retreat to the mountains every night.
    • Relax on the couch in the evening reading Lucky Peach and thinking about new dishes/specials for Zolo Grill
