Hotel Valley Ho Announces New Pastry Chef

Scottsdale's Chic Downtown Resort Welcomes Deavynne Millward

USA, Scottsdale, Arizona. July 16, 2021

Hotel Valley Ho, the iconic desert hideaway centrally located in downtown Scottsdale, is pleased to announce the appointment of new talent to the culinary team with Pastry Chef Deavynne Millward.

"We're delighted to add to our incredible culinary team with Deavynne Millward as our new pastry chef," said Ronen Aviram, vice president, and general manager. "Her innovative nature, combined with her talent and passion for baking, make her the perfect fit for ZuZu and Hotel Valley Ho."

Raised in Tucson, Ariz., and New Jersey, Millward attended a vocational program in high school that piqued her interest in culinary. She studied at Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Scottsdale, Ariz., where she perfected her baking skills. While there, she also completed an externship at Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort & Spa and soon after earned her degree in patisserie and baking. She started her first pastry job at the Arizona Biltmore and later took the helm at Tonto Bar & Grill in Cave Creek, Ariz. as a pastry chef. She also made an appearance on Food Network's first season of the show, "Candy Land."

At Hotel Valley Ho, Millward will lead the pastry team and oversee desserts for the hotel's signature restaurant, ZuZu, as well as for banquets and weddings. Her first creation for the hotel is the latest edition of ZuZu's famous "Show Stopper" Shake - an elevated take on the classic milkshake featuring house-made desserts piled on top and a brand-new theme every month. July's featured flavor is Hazel Royal, a Nutella shake topped with a Nutella-stuffed donut, Ferrero Rocher chocolates, chocolate milk crumb, chocolate curls, and a piece of chocolate-dipped-and-fried angel food cake. Millward resides in Glendale with her fiancé Haofa, their cats Buttercup and Beezlebub, and cockatoo Casper.

Food & Beverage: Remarkably Resilient


In the wake of the devastation that disrupted every aspect of their operations, the hotel food & beverage industry is proceeding with cautious optimism and a measure of hope as it re-emerges from the pandemic's darker days. It is also bringing forward all the lessons learned from the challenges that were faced, and integrating them into their current, day-to-day operations. For example, new digital interfaces that minimize physical contact, including tableside ordering systems and QR code menus. Here to stay are also features such as packaged room service meals and cocktails; on-property, quick-service food options; a greater emphasis on outdoor dining and pop-up restaurants; gourmet home meal kits; live-streamed cooking classes; and virtual wine-tastings. Still, some challenges remain, such as coping with a persistent labor shortage and maintaining scrupulous sanitation standards. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on what some leading hotels are doing to integrate these changes into their F&B operations as they rebound with a remarkable resiliency.
