About the Chef

Eric Arballo has lived at the Boulder Mountain Guest Ranch for 5 years and through his time here has come to love the desert and his true passion for the culinary world.

The past few years he has worked under executive chef of Sweetwater Kitchen Scott Ashley; a phenomenal chef with over 30 years of experience. During that time Eric realized that his 15 years of experience in the kitchen all lead up to this place in time.

Eric is now the head chef of BMGR’s Sweetwater Kitchen. His passion lies in not only delicious meals, but ones that are simple and rely on local and fresh ingredients that should be showcased rather than over-seasoned. His favorite international cuisine to cook is Italian and he is a lover of sushi. Eric is also an artist and likes to translate that passion into food making, as cooking is taking raw ingredients and transforming them into something beautiful for both the palette and the eyes.
