Stefano Andreoli Appointed New Executive Chef at Four Seasons Hotel Riyadh at Kingdom Centre
Four Seasons Hotel Riyadh at Kingdom Centre Saudi Arabia welcomes Stefano Andreoli as its new Executive Chef, overseeing the Hotel's culinary experience, including the Lobby Lounge, Elements, The Grill, In-Room Dining, Catering and Banqueting for special events.
Born in Brescia, in northern Italy, Andreoli's passion for cooking came from "madre," whom he, the youngest of four, watched in the kitchen while he was growing up. He says he can remember every item his mother cooked, the passion and love she put into the process, and the way she used only products that were in the market at the time.
By the age of 13, he knew what he wanted to do and following culinary school in Italy, his career took him to different corners of the world. He started his journey with Four Seasons as opening Sous Chef in the Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru in 2006, then as opening Senior Sous Chef in Mauritius two years later, landed in Singapore as Senior Sous Chef in 2009, became opening Executive Sous Chef in Guangzhou, China in 2011, then Executive Chef at Four Seasons Hotel Bahrain Bay in 2014, followed by a role as Director of Culinary Operations in 2018, based at Four Seasons Hotel Cairo at Nile Plaza and overlooking other Four Seasons properties in Egypt.
Not only an expert in his craft, Chef Andreoli is also a great teacher. His ability to involve his culinary team in the preparation, cooking, garnishing and presentation of the food to the highest standards ensures expanding their culinary horizons to continue creating unique experiences through food for locals and Hotel guests.
"I am very excited to be working with the whole team at Four Seasons Hotel Riyadh," says Andreoli. "I look forward to introducing new and innovative concepts that will keep people talking about the Hotel venues."
