ACF Chef Peter Gebauer, embarks on a new business venture to become Innkeeper
Milwaukee, January 25, 2017—Long time Milwaukee chef Peter Gebauer, AAC, WCMC, GMC who made his mark as the top chef at Potawatomi Hotel & Casino, and currently is the President of the ACF Chefs of Milwaukee, is embarking on his own business venture, The Watson Lake Inn.
Chef Gebauer recently purchased a bed & breakfast in Prescott, Arizona and is in the process of refurbishing the Inn’s guest rooms and kitchen, to open for business in March 2017. The Inn will also operate a cooking school on its premises, and grow its own fruit and vegetables.
“In my eleven years here in Milwaukee, I made many friends, and I am grateful for being able to contribute some to the exciting and progressive food service scene here, as executive chef at the casino, the president of the ACF chapter and supporting the Wisconsin Restaurant Associations Education Foundation to name a few. I am leaving with mixed feelings heading south west – for a new and promising venture. I was always fond of the southwest and this is an opportunity in Prescott, Arizona – too great to pass on”. Said Chef Gebauer.
Watson Lake Inn located just minutes from downtown Prescott, provides spectacular views of the Granite Dells, Mingus Mountain and the San Francisco Peak in the distance. At the Watson Lake Inn, we embrace a return to the old ways with whole foods and ancient grains – naturally grown or raised, nutrient-dense and processed-free. The Inn is also home of The Culinary Academy, the place where you can learn to have fun in the kitchen. Classes are meant to entertain, amuse, and inspire you, giving you confidence no matter what you’re cooking up. Our classes cover a world of cuisines and trendy topics.
Owned and operated by acclaimed Chef Peter Gebauer and his wife Aimé, Watson Lake Inn is the place for you; enjoy good food; to honeymoon, celebrate an anniversary or birthday, or just get away for a few days to relax.
“Watson Lake Inn – where culinary pleasures and experiences become lifetime memories.”
