It’s an exciting time as the Shore Lodge team welcomes our new executive chef, Steven Topple! An acclaimed industry veteran, Chef Steven comes to us most recently from the Sonnenalp Resort of Vail. Here in McCall, he will bring his depth of luxury hotel experience and classic training to oversee the multiple restaurants at Shore Lodge and Whitetail Club.
A celebrated chef, Steven has had the honor of being selected to appear at a number of events hosted by the James Beard House in New York City, including “The Best of Rock Resorts” celebration and the “The Great Rocky Mountain Pinot Noir Dinner.” In 2005 he published his first book, So You Want To Impress!!!!, followed by his second work, a cookbook entitled Signatures, in 2010. He has also earned a selection of awards and accolades including the “Young Chef of the Year” from Nestle Food Service in 1997. He earned his diploma from Highbury Catering College in Portsmouth, England, before moving to the states to pursue his culinary dreams.
Now, Chef Steven’s talents have led him to Idaho to share his rustic yet elegant seasonal dishes that highlight local and regional ingredients and pair perfectly with our award-winning wine program. We look forward to sharing more on Chef Steven and hope you will stop by to welcome him soon!
