Great Wolf Lodge recently announced the formation of a Junior Chef Council, a panel comprised of the country’s top kid chefs and culinary tastemakers who will come together to advise on and help develop a new kids’ menu for the entire company’s 17 indoor waterpark resorts.  The Junior Chef Council is the culmination of an extensive search to identify youthful and passionate culinary talent who will bring a unique perspective to Great Wolf Lodge’s ever-evolving and innovative food and beverage program.

 Some of these amazing junior chef’s have amazing teachers! Great Wolf Lodge’s Junior Chef Council members are made up of  MasterChef Junior Season 2 winner,Logan Guleff (15) and MasterChef Junior Season 5 winner, Jasmine Stewart (13); Jonas Cora Ehrlich (12) and Gavin Cora Ehrlich (10), sons of Iron Chef Cat Cora and wife, Nicole Cora EhrlichMadeline Zakarian (11) and Anna Zakarian (9), daughters of Iron Chef Geoffrey Zakarian; and Conrad Elliot (8) and Jed Elliot (6), sons of Chef Graham Elliot.  While Conrad is an official member of the Council, Jed will serve as the Council’s official taster, ensuring his brother and other members are delivering on the culinary goods.

Great Wolf Lodge Helps Reduce Waste!

Great Wolf Resorts announced that it will replace plastic straws at all 17 of its indoor water park resorts with more environmentally friendly paper straws.  The family-friendly resort company is joining the cause to remove plastic straws from all of its food and beverage locations before the end of 2018, saving more than five million plastic straws from entering local landfills annually. 

 

In 2007 Great Wolf Lodge introduced Project Green Wolf, a program focused on energy and resource conservation which has become an integral part of each resort’s daily operation.  As part of the Project Green Wolf initiative, the use of paper straws is the latest of the company’s efforts to be a good steward of the environment. 

 

In addition to the paper straws, Great Wolf Lodge will maintain a small supply of other straw options for guests who are unable to drink from non-flexible paper straws. 

 

We are so happy to partner with Great Wolf Lodge to bring you even more exciting fun you can expect for the rest of 2018! Check us out on our social channels (Instagram and Facebook)  to see updates about the Media Day of Play August 8th!!
