Chef C. Barclay Dodge has spent the last thirty years traveling to exotic places from North Africa, the Mediterranean, South East Asia, Central America, Australia and all over Sub-Sahara Africa. The flavors & cultures of the East have always intrigued him and he finds himself heavily delving into the markets, restaurants (white tablecloth and street food) and cooking classes whenever he travels. Working in Michelin starred restaurants in Spain and New York are also where he draws immense inspiration.
Originally from Aspen, cooking quickly became a deep love of Chef Dodge's since the restaurants were one of the few places that would employ the youth. For the last twenty-five years, he has traveled and cooked between Aspen and other parts of the country and globe. He developed a great reputation and clientele and the community is always curious as to what is next for the talented chef.

Rachel's culinary ambitions started at a young age and eventually brought her out of the Midwest and here to Aspen. After cooking and competing in culinary competitions in high school, she accepted a full-ride scholarship to The Culinary Institute of America. While at the CIA, she continued to grow her passion for food while interning at Eleven Madison Park in New York City and emerging herself in the culture of a Michelin restaurant. Towards the end of her time at CIA, she traveled to Italy to study the food and wine of the southern regions, and gained a new perspective on the Italian culture itself.
After graduating from the CIA in 2013 with her bachelors degree in Culinary Arts Management, she moved to Aspen to join the culinary team at The Little Nell. During her time at The Little Nell, she worked her way through the kitchen, eventually becoming a Sous Chef in August 2015. After more than two years at The Little Nell, it was time for new adventures and loves her Culinary team at Bosq.
Christopher came to Aspen in 2002 and has been living back and forth between Aspen and California until recently when he decided to stay put in the mountains. He is originally from St. Louis where his parents were constantly looking for reasons to entertain. Entertaining is in his blood and he has been an incredible asset to Bosq due to his love of making everyone feel comfortable and keeping the vibe in the room unique and energized. If you need anything at all during your visits to Bosq, make sure to call on him. He will always deliver. When he is not at the restaurant you can find him on the slopes in the winter and in his airstream in the summer!
Bosq would like to introduce you to Alexis Kendall, but you can call her Lexi. Lexi was raised in both Basalt, Colorado and Naples, Florida. Lexi enjoys bombing down the Colorado Mountains on her snowboard and hiking with her dog, Bulleit Rye (yes, named from her favorite whiskey). Lexi has a knack for remembering people’s faces, and their favorite drinks (locals and tourists alike.) For the past decade, Lexi has been concocting divine and innovative cocktails, mixed just to your liking. She is thrilled to have joined the fantastic crew at Bosq Aspen and looks forward to spoiling you at her bar!
