Group Dining Menu

Many of our groups prefer to prearrange a group dining menu for their tour group members. Our group dining menu makes planning and budgeting easy for everyone. Each group dining option allows meeting planners to maintain their budget by assigning a fixed cost to the meals on a per person basis. While at the same time, our menu choices within each meal budget give guests the opportunity to choose what they prefer to eat without being limited by a preset entreé.  Group Dining Menu »

Executive Chef Wes Choy

Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge is pleased to announce that Wes Choy was made Executive Chef in 2016.
Wes Choy has been working at the Lodge for the past two seasons as a Sous Chef and has shown great ability to manage the staff effectively while creating wonderful food.
 
Raised in and around New York City as well as Western New York, Chef Wes brings his passion for seasonal and refined cuisine to Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge.
 
After excelling at the Vancouver Culinary Arts program in Vancouver, British Columbia, Chef Wes proceeded to hone his skills within award-winning kitchens around the world.  He credits his culinary range to the great many teachers who have welcomed him into their kitchens throughout his journeys.
 
Sustainability and locally-grown products are very important to Chef Wes, grounded in his experience assisting on farms and ranches in the U.S. He loves to apply a wide range of international cuisines including Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Modern American, Classic French and Latin American to his farm-to-table cooking concepts.
 
Chef Wes is an ardent believer that a great ingredient is made in nature – he sees it as his responsibility to heighten, rather than mask, its flavors with only a deft and sometimes ‘playful’ touch.
