Head Chef Patrick Mixis will welcome guest chefs to the Lodge to showcase global cuisine in Copper Harbor.
Mixis, a native of Kalamazoo and owner of the Feed the World Cafe, specializes in global cuisine, plant-based cooking, and molecular gastronomy. His primary goal at the Lodge is to combine classic recipes with innovative, modern cooking techniques, while providing exceptional new options for a variety of dietary lifestyles.
By inviting guest chefs to feature their talents in the Keweenaw, Mixis hopes to experiment with new flavors, textures, and recipes, while offering the community the opportunity to sample the work of talented chefs from around the country.
Each chef will spend a week at the Lodge. During their stay, the chef will work with kitchen staff on a special menu that features their favorite dishes, while also spending time getting to know the Keweenaw Peninsula and interacting with Lodge guests.
At the end of June, the Lodge will welcome Chef Widad Mueller. Chef Mueller specializes in cuisine from her native Lebanon, which celebrates fresh produce, mild spices, and savory meat dishes. She will start in the Lodge kitchen on June 26th.

About: The Keweenaw Mountain Lodge is a historic wilderness resort at the top of the Keweenaw, focused on outdoor activities, rustic worldly food, and education. The resort has been a fixture in the Keweenaw since breaking ground on the project in 1934 as part of a WPA program. The four-season resort consists of log cabins, a lodge, dining services, access to mountain biking, running, and hiking trails, and a 9-hole golf course. The Lodge is the headquarters for the Keweenaw Dark Sky Park. These amenities provide guests with the opportunity to enjoy a fun, joyous, and adventuresome experience among the pristine natural beauty of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula — helping guests get closer to nature.
