HONG KONG, March 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Conrad Hong Kong is pleased to announce the arrival of Claudio Rossi as the hotel's executive chef. Having worked in various countries around the world, Chef Claudio will bring his excellent culinary and management skills to the hotel, as he oversees all its food and beverage outlets and catering services.
Coming from Milan, Italy, Chef Claudio inherits the attuned sense towards food and flavours from his mother, who boasts deep knowledge in cooking. He apprenticed in the fine dining restaurants across the country under such masters as Gualtiero Marchesi and Claudio Sadler, and grew into an accomplished chef in Italian cuisine. His food is guided by the principles of simplicity, quality and consistency. Insisting on seasonal ingredients, Chef Claudio pays close attention to every detail in his cooking, in doing so giving the dishes their own voice to connect with diners.
At the age of 24, Chef Claudio made a decisive move to Asia to continue his quest of understanding culinary cultures around the world. Here he worked in multiple luxury hotel groups, playing a major role in many hotel openings and large-scale events. This not only exposed him to the nuances in different Asian cuisines, he also took the opportunity to widen his professional network. To Chef Claudio, Hong Kong makes for a natural stop of his journey, as it has a dynamic and creative dining scene. The vibrant culture and efficiency of the city epitomises the spirits of Asia.
"With tremendous culinary and management experiences from some of the most luxurious hotels around the world, Claudio will continue to build on the hotel legacy and create more inspiring dining experiences for our guests." said Thomas Hoeborn, general manager, Conrad Hong Kong. With regards to restaurant management, Chef Claudio prefers to form a close bond with his team. He believes being respectful, humble and passionate are the essences for success. With the reputation of Conrad Hong Kong and all its dining outlets in his mind, Chef Claudio intends to maintain their admirable legacy and discover new opportunities to develop the career of his team member, taking the hotel to the next level.
