Hilton Al Hamra Beach & Golf Resort has appointed Thorsten Beermann as its executive chef.

Beermann, who joined the property this month (January 2018), is responsible for all kitchen operations, and arrived straight from his role as cluster executive chef of Hilton Garden Inn Ras Al Khaimah and Hilton Ras Al Khaimah Resort & Spa.

Graduating in 1984 after completing a food and beverage craft course at Cornwall Technical College in Great Britain, he went on to obtain various cookery certificates for catering, food and beverage service as well as communication skills.

Before taking charge as cluster executive chef of Hilton Ras Al Khaimah in 2015, Beermann moved through the ranks from commis de cuisine and chef de partie to sous chef and food production manager.

Thirty-two years after walking into his first professional kitchen, Beermann’s career has seen him working in and managing operations in hotels across the world including Saudi Arabia, Greece, Switzerland, Hong Kong, Bahrain, Philippines, Kazakhstan, United Kingdom, and the United Arab Emirates.
