Six Senses Zighy Bay Oman ap­points ex­ec­u­tive sous chef

Muscat Daily - - PRESS RELEASES -

Six Senses Zighy Bay has wel­comed ex­ec­u­tive sous chef Pa­tri­cia Yeo, who brings to the re­sort a wealth of knowl­edge and ex­pe­ri­ence in gourmet food of­fer­ings. Fol­low­ing al­most two decades of study­ing and work­ing in the culi­nary sec­tor in the US, Pa­tri­cia opened her own restau­rant, earn­ing three stars from the New York Times.

In 2010, she ac­cepted the role of culi­nary di­rec­tor for restau­rants in Mi­ami and Las Ve­gas plus the role of culi­nary op­er­a­tions di­rec­tor for the Sa­muels­son Group in New York. She was a key mem­ber in menu de­vel­op­ment and con­sul­ta­tion for Mon­key Bar in New York plus restau­rants in Bos­ton and Bal Har­bour, Florida.

Known for blend­ing ex­otic Asian, Mediter­ranean and South Western in­gre­di­ents, Pa­tri­cia has been fea­tured in count­less mag­a­zines, named a ris­ing culi­nary star and made ap­pear­ances on nu­mer­ous TV shows in the US, in­clud­ing the very pop­u­lar MasterChef se­ries. Pa­tri­cia has also au­thored two cook­books and a range of mag­a­zine ar­ti­cles.

Ex­ec­u­tive sous chef Pa­tri­cia said, “Six Senses Zighy Bay is a truly ex­cit­ing prop­erty for me per­son­ally. It is my first ex­pe­ri­ence liv­ing in the Mid­dle East and my first foray into the world of re­sorts and ho­tels.

“I am so for­tu­nate to be work­ing with great tal­ent and am look­ing for­ward to learn­ing and ab­sorb­ing their wealth of in­for­ma­tion, while at the same time shar­ing many of my ex­pe­ri­ences. It is a great syn­ergy.” Pa­tri­cia has much to look for­ward to in the com­ing months, from de­vel­op­ing new menu of­fer­ings at the re­sort’s fine din­ing restau­rant Sense on the Edge to the launch of a new con­cept by the Salt Wa­ter Pool.

She rel­ishes hav­ing the room to ex­plore new com­bi­na­tions of flavours, in­gre­di­ents and cook­ing styles, while in­cor­po­rat­ing it into her al­ready broad ex­pe­ri­ence. She sees as in­vig­o­rat­ing the fun of be­ing able to jux­ta­pose the rus­tic and re­mote en­vi­ron­ment with an ur­bane and cos­mopoli­tan avant-guard style of cui­sine. Six Senses Zighy Bay is lo­cated on the north­ern Mu­san­dam Penin­sula in the sul­tanate. The set­ting of 82 vil­lage-in­spired pool vil­las is a spec­tac­u­lar bay, guarded by the dra­matic Ha­jar Moun­tains and pri­vate sandy beach.

Guests have a di­verse se­lec­tion of mem­o­rable din­ing ex­pe­ri­ences from Sense on the Edge, a con­tem­po­rary fine din­ing with spec­tac­u­lar views to re­gional spe­cial­ties at the Shua Shack and Spice Mar­ket, a Wine Cel­lar, a Wine Tower or Din­ing Be­yond the Bay at one of the pri­vate sand­banks. For a change of pace, in-villa din­ing is an in­ti­mate and very en­joy­able ex­pe­ri­ence, which guest ex­pe­ri­ence mak­ers (GEMs) will be pleased to ar­range.
