KENNETH MACDONALD, EXECUTIVE CHEF
Kenneth MacDonald joined Sleeping Lady as Executive Chef in August 2008, bringing with him more than 20 years of culinary experience. MacDonald was classically trained at the Ritz in London before moving on to lead culinary operations for hotels and restaurants across the globe. From the City Tattersals Members Club in Sydney, Australia to the Pan Pacific Sonargoan Hotel in Dhaka, Bangladesh to several hotels throughout both South Africa and India – MacDonald has cooked for royalty, celebrities and heads of state. Most recently, before Sleeping Lady, MacDonald led the kitchens at the Esteban Restaurant at the Casa Munras Hotel in Monterey, California.
Meals are chef’s choice and are served buffet style in Kingfisher’s lodge-style setting which features exposed wood beams, river rock, and sweeping views of Icicle Canyon. European-style seating encourages interaction among guests. An extensive beer and wine list highlights local favorites and compliments the menu, which changes daily. Seasonal speciality drinks are also available.
