Location: Retreat at Sunny Vista
Get to know Chef Aaron Burke:
Our Dining Department at Sunny Vista would not be the same without our Head Chef, Aaron Burke.
Aaron Burke was born and raised right here in Colorado Springs CO. He has been in food and beverage in the hospitality industry for more than 20 years. He has worked in every position a restaurant can offer from front of house to back of house and received his culinary degree at the top of his class from Le Cordon Bleu in Austin TX.
Him and his wife own a dance studio here in Colorado Springs (The Peak School of Dance). They have been voted on Best of the Springs multiple years in a row. They have two beautiful little girls 6 and 3 years old. In the little free time that he has, he enjoys archery, the shooting range, and automotive work. For the peace and tranquility, he escapes the city to decompress in the mountains, with his two great dogs that love the water. They also accompany him on many creek trails around Colorado Springs.
After many restaurants and multiple hotels, he decided to shift course in his career. He started in healthcare seven years ago and found that the joy in cooking for those that paved the path for us is incredibly rewarding. He has been with Sunny Vista for almost a half a year now and he is incredibly enthusiastic about the future ahead of us.
