Kohler Co. has announced the appointment of Doug Stringer as head chef of The Immigrant Restaurant, located at The American Club resort-hotel at Destination Kohler.

Stringer joined Kohler Co. in 2015 as sous chef of Riverbend, where he oversaw all facets of kitchen operations, purchasing, food cost management, staffing, menu design, and overall leadership. He has over seven years of fine dining and hospitality experience. In his new role, he will oversee the development and creation of culinary programs.

“Chef Stringer has exemplified his dedicated passion, drive and creativity throughout his tenure with Kohler Co., and we are thrilled to see him take the lead at the Immigrant Restaurant,” says Tom McGinty, director of food and beverage operations at Destination Kohler. “The Immigrant Restaurant is one of our premier dining offerings, and we’re confident that chef will continue to elevate the illustrious program with his innovative approach to fine dining.”

Kohler’s celebrated dining program, The Immigrant Restaurant is rich in character and historic significance. The layout is designed in six spaces, representing the nationalities that populated Wisconsin in its early days (French, Dutch, German, Normandy, Danish and English). The restaurant features a seasonally evolving and is accompanied with an extensive vintage wine and spirit list.

As the spread of the novel coronavirus continues to put immense pressure on the U.S. health care system and the people who keep it running, the American Hotel and Lodging Association is working to connect hotels with health workers who are struggling to find housing.

 

With the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, most people are working from home. Many are social distancing or quarantining with their children, who have transitioned to online classes. Restaurants, bars, coffee shops, offices, stores and so much more have been temporarily shut down in many states, affecting daily life in the most unexpected of ways.

 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Sunday recommended that all gatherings of more than 50 people be cancelled or postponed for the next eight weeks, in order to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19. The recommendation covers events like parades, concerts, festivals, conferences, sporting events, weddings and more.
