Whether you know it or not, you’ve probably heard of Troy Guard—or at least you’ve heard of his food. He’s the mastermind, chef, and owner of TAG Restaurant Group, which includes seven different restaurants in Denver, and two more in the works for next year. He’s worked alongside several big names in the culinary biz (Roy Yamaguchi and Richard Sandoval, for starters), and he’s known for pushing the boundaries of creativity (pop rocks on kampachi, anyone?). Here, we’ve devised a handy timeline so you can see where the culinary connoisseur began, what he’s up to now, and what we can look forward to in the near future.
