Meet Chef Troy Guard

Chef Troy Guard is one of the best chefs out there, but don’t take our word for it. The Hawaii native has been named one of the “Great Regional Chefs of America” by the James Beard Foundation. He’s the force behind several Denver restaurants, including Tag, Los Chingones, Guard and Grace, Tag Burger Bar and Mister Tuna – with more on the way!

After finishing college and going on to train at each of La Costa Resort’s five well-respected restaurants in San Diego, he returned to Hawaii and soon became sous chef to the famed Roy Yamaguchi, whose fusion restaurants blend California, French, and Japanese traditions. After nearly a decade with Yamaguchi, he refined his unique Pacific Rim cooking style as Chef de Cuisine at internationally acclaimed Doc Cheng’s in Singapore.

Since coming to Denver, he’s been a force to be reckoned with, opening a slew of well-loved restaurants in the area. And he’s just getting started.

Lucky for us, Guard will be bringing his talents to We Don’t Waste’s annual Fill A Plate for Hunger Presented by CoBank as our “chef extraordinaire”. We can’t wait to see what delicious dishes he’ll be accessing for all our guests from the other great chefs of Denver.
