Meet Our New Chef!

As we get closer to opening the restaurant, we are excited to announce that we have hired a chef. Meet Peter! 

Peter & His Dog Rocket

Peter O'Keefe was born and raised in Southern California. Peter quickly left home to pursue travel, the outdoors, and learn various culinary landscapes. He has enjoyed an amazing career across many different concepts, now following his heart and palette to the Sierra's. Peter describes himself as a bit of a 'culinary gypsy', creating palettes and menus from his worldwide exposure. When not in the kitchen, you can find Peter on the slopes, trail running, notching off some segments of the PCT with his dog or sharing his love for the Sierra’s with his two daughters. With passions for culinary arts, seasonal & creative cuisine, and community, we think he will make an amazing fit on our team.

In Peter's words, "I am so humbled to call Kirkwood my home and look forward to sharing my love and passion for community and offering a memorable and tasty culinary experience at Caples Lake Resort."

We can't wait to see what he will cook up for us. Welcome Peter to the Caples Lake Resort family! Please note, we do not have an official opening date for the restaurant & bar and will keep everyone posted. Lodging is available starting December 27th so call today to make your reservation!
