Glo Noodle House owners Ariana and Christopher Teigland met while working at Blackbelly in Boulder.

Growing up, Christopher Teigland noticed his mother’s love language was food.

“My mom always took care of people through food,” Teigland said. “She brought people together and raised us in that way, which I loved. When I developed my own passion for cooking, she was the only person I could call that understood.”

Teigland’s mother, who was a pastry chef, died eight years ago, shortly after he landed his first executive chef job. He promised to carry on her love for food.

The restaurant, opening next Thursday, will serve small classic

Now it’s Dreamer’s thing. She is the owner of Miss Prissy’s in Salt City Market. Soul food is her specialty. For her it’s,

“Family, comfort, home, love, peace. You know all those elements coming together. It’s just like one big hug. Soul Food is one big hug. You eat that macaroni and cheese and it’s just like ‘oh gosh. I feel so much better.’”
