Dusit Thani Abu Dhabi hires executive chef
Christophe Gavois moves from Starwood's Ajman Saray to take up new role
Dusit Thani Abu Dhabi has hired Christophe Gavois as its new executive chef.
French native Christophe moves from his previous role of executive chef at Starwood’s Ajman Saray, A luxury Collection Resort.
Kamal Chaoui, general manager at Dusit Thani Abu Dhabi, said: “It is with great pleasure that I welcome Chef Christophe to the team. He brings with him such a wide range of global culinary and management skills which will be of great benefit to the continued growth of our diverse outlets.
“The thread running through my career as a chef is my passion for local products. I do not impose a particular style of cuisine but prefer to cook with what the region has to offer and exploit these natural resources and influences. However I never want this to become a gimmick on my menu creations which is why the local produce must be of the absolute highest quality.”
Gavois worked with Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts in various F&B roles from 2000 – 2009 in Dublin, Egypt and the UK.
He also worked for Starwood’s Sheraton brand for four years in Abu Dhabi, where he moved from executive sous chef to executive chef, before taking on his most recent role at the Ajman Saray.
With experience in European, Caribbean, Asian and Middle Eastern cuisines, Gavois has worked in the hotel F&B industry for 20 years.
He will oversee Dusit Thani Abu Dhabi’s portfolio of six restaurants including Urban Kitchen, Capital Grill and Orchid Lounge.
