Over the weekend Master announced that her dream of returning to the Iron Range town that raised her is coming true. In late March it was announced that the chef who appeared on ABC's The Taste would depart her longtime position at Cafe Barbette to open a place of her own, but we didn't know where she was going.
She along with business partner Dan Beckwith are opening a 90-seat modern supper club on the shores of Swan Lake at Mr. Robert's Resort. The resort is a combination of cabins and RV sites in the north woods with boat access and an attached restaurant and bar.
The modern Midwestern menu will include dishes like mac and cheese stuffed meatloaf, smelt fries, venison stroganoff and other dishes that are inspired takes on foods Master grew up eating.
Pengilly is located between Grand Rapids and Hibbing in northern Minnesota.
Mr. Robert's Resort is expected to open this June and will operate year round.
