Inspired Local Ingredients

Executive Chef Wes Choy

Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge is pleased to announce that Wes Choy was made Executive Chef in 2016.

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, where he has been the Executive Chef since 2016.

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 in Asia, Europe, & North America.

Sustainability and locally grown products are very important to Wes. His menus are appreciated for showcasing ingredients indigenous to Alaska and the greater Pacific Northwest region, while drawing inspiration from flavor profiles celebrated around the world.

Chef Wes is an ardent believer that a great ingredient is made in nature, it is his responsibility to heighten, rather than mask, its flavors with only a deft, sometimes ‘playful’, touch.
