Named in tribute to the Mile High City of Denver, Colorado, 5280 Culinary was founded in 2010 by Executive Chef Jason K. Morse, CEC.
“5280 is a mindset that encompasses our mentality and that of our entire region,” said Morse, “It’s a mindset that says: “Go BIG. Aim HIGH. Reach. Above. Beyond.” That’s exactly what we do. We will never be satisfied staying at status quo. We aim high. We exceed expectation.
Our Products: 5280 Culinary is purveyor of an exceptional line of spices, rubs and brines used by discriminating home cooks and professionals. And, because the world needs an extraordinary caramel, we created and make available specialized, small-batch, limited edition, handcrafted, off-the-charts Earth Salt Caramels.
Our Services: Our founder, head-honcho and executive-in-charge, is a driven sort with a solid personality and big heart. Chef Jason simply loves people, loves food and works really hard to bring the two together in harmony.
“Food is a celebration in itself. An event that has so-so food is not much of an event. Our daily lives revolve around choosing exceptional or choosing mundane. We choose exceptional and want to help everyone we meet to do the same. Exceptional doesn’t take any more effort than basic. It just takes setting your mind on doing great things, the best things for others and yourself.”
This healthful, soulful mindset regarding food as “fellowship” permeates the entire 5280 Culinary team. We provide consulting services designed to impact all ages: Working with childhood nutrition advocacy through education, nutrition program development and ProStart student mentoring. We also provide support to the restaurant and hospitality industry, home cooks, product launches, special events and Agriculture programs and initiatives.
