Chef Tyson Peterson

Leonora, The Sebastian | Vail, CO |

Born and raised among the mountains, lakes and wildlife of Utah, Tyson Peterson realized his passion for cooking while growing up alongside a large and tight knit extended family. Completely inspired but unable to wrangle his creativity, Peterson struggled in deciding which of his interests to pursue as a career. And though he originally felt called to architecture, he ultimately decided that his passion for the culinary world far surpassed any of his other hobbies or interests.

He entered the industry when he was recommended for a stage at The J&G Grill in Park City, Utah, where he would experience firsthand the thrill of the Olympics. He has developed an impressive pedigree since that time, most notably as a result of his work at The St. Regis Hotel - Deer Valley, home of a world class Chef Jean George restaurant, where he quickly became Sous Chef. During the Summer months Peterson expanded his skills at various restaurants, landing at Finca in Salt Lake City. It was here that Peterson became interested in the farm-to-table movement, taking that community-driven knowledge with him to the beautiful Vail Valley where he leads a seasoned and innovative team at restaurant Leonora.
