Hailing from Taos, NM Chef Rosenberg’s culinary path began while earning a degree in Engineering Physics at the University of Colorado. Quickly, he realized his work in the kitchen was his true passion, and he moved rapidly through the ranks as a young cook. By November 2014, his ultimate goal was realized with the opening of Blackbelly as a full-service restaurant, bar and market in East Boulder, expanding further into the space next door in 2016 with Blackbelly Butcher. The business has quickly been identified as an acclaimed dining destination and top retailer in Colorado. To date, Chef Hosea has won numerous accolades including Best Chef Denver International Wine Festival, Guest Chef at the James Beard House, and he was recognized by the United States Small Business Administration as a “business owner inspiring the entrepreneurial spirit of the nation.”
