Four Seasons welcomes USS Colorado submarine chefs, Sept. 26

Daily staff report

VAIL — The team at Four Seasons Resort and Residences Vail will welcome two chefs from the USS Colorado submarine, the newest member of America's fast attack fleet, on Monday, for a hyper-local culinary experience.

Before a submarine's launch, it's tradition to have a few of the chefs visit the state the submarine is named after to learn about the local flavors. The USS Colorado Committee, a nonprofit that raises money and awareness for the submarine, has lined up these experiences.

"It is certainly a privilege to have one of these elite submarines named after our state," said Shauna King, USS Colorado Submarine Committee member. "The committee is working hard to make sure that the ship has a flavor and theme of Colorado, and I couldn't think of a better fit that represents our state than having the chefs tour our Colorado mountains for this culinary experience."

The seamen will shadow Four Seasons chef Marcus Stewart during the day to master local recipes that they will bring back to the submarine and share during their tour of duty.

The experience will culminate with a dinner at Flame Restaurant, the resort's modern mountain steakhouse, where a portion of proceeds from sales that evening will go to the USS Colorado Committee. Guests dining at Flame that night will also be entered in a drawing for a chance to win a two-night stay at Four Seasons Resort and Residences Vail.
