Chef Kilgore to oversee culinary programming at Alaska’s most popular fishing lodge, in addition to its exclusive, luxury counterpart, Steamboat Bay Fishing Club
The Waterfall Group, leaders in adventure hospitality management, announces the appointment of Executive Chef Meagan Kilgore. Chef Kilgore will now oversee dining operations at Alaska’s most popular fishing lodge, Waterfall Resort, and will continue to develop creative upscale Alaskan fare at the luxurious Steamboat Bay Fishing Club during the 2015 summer season.
This marks Chef Kilgore’s first season as Executive Chef overseeing the culinary program at Waterfall Resort after serving as Chef de Cuisine last year at Steamboat Bay Fishing Club. Previously, Chef Kilgore was Executive Chef of Copper River Lodge in Pope Vannoy, Alaska, a subsidiary of Sweetwater Travel. Prior to that, she served as Executive Chef at Journey’s Pub, a small pub-bistro in Portland, Ore. where she fine-tuned her expertise in classic American cuisine with a Pacific Northwest twist. Chef Kilgore’s background also includes tenures at Tualatin Country Club in Tualatin, Ore. and at Sea Sport Cruises in Wailuku, Hawaii, where she opened and developed Ola Catering and Porto Pizzeria.
In her new role, Chef Kilgore will take a casual and accessible approach to the menu at Waterfall Resort while focusing on quality. After a full day of fishing, guests will feast on hearty Alaskan fare suitable for hungry anglers. The enhanced culinary program under Chef Kilgore will offer a rotating assortment of noteworthy dishes served buffet-style, including traditional favorites like grilled Angus beef, lasagna, prime rib, creamy Dijon stroganoff and roasted chicken combined with a taste of fresh Alaskan seafood such as Cedar Plank Salmon, Dungeness Crab and Halibut.
Waterfall Resort’s 2015 season is from June 12 – August 17, and Steamboat Bay Fishing Club’s season is set for June 21 August 8.
