"Connecting tastes with memories makes you understand what works, and what doesn't. Every chef has and continues to have moments that they learn from... if it doesn't taste right, don't do it that way again!"

Chef Bryce Norblom


Chef Bryce has worked in a variety of culinary roles across the nation prior to partnering with colleagues to open a nose-to-tail Butcher’s Bistro. His hands-on approach — from writing menus, testing new recipes, managing costs, visiting ranches and farms, mixing cocktails to breaking down whole carcasses — was an invaluable and enjoyable experience.

A native of Colorado, Chef Bryce started his interest in restaurants in high school working for a large seafood restaurant, Pappadeaux. He was quickly hooked on the energy of the kitchen.

Bryce attended Colorado State University in Ft. Collins, Colorado, and graduated with a degree in Hospitality Management with a minor in Business Administration. While attending CSU, he worked at Snooze AM Eatery, starting as a dishwasher, and just two years later moved into corporate training as the opening chef for new locations across the nation.

His passion for teaching continues as Chef Instructor at Escoffier.
