Ex­ec­u­tive chef, Alila Ja­bal Akhdar

Alila Ja­bal Akhdar has ap­pointed Danny Wilkin­son, who was pre­vi­ously pri­vate VVIP chef at Al Gurm Vil­las in Abu Dhabi, as its new ex­ec­u­tive chef.

Born in the UK, Wilkin­son brings to Oman 12 years of ex­pe­ri­ence work­ing in fives­tar ho­tels and Miche­lin-starred es­tab­lish­ments in­clud­ing Wa­ter­side Inn along­side Alain Roux.

In 2014, Danny’s culi­nary jour­ney brought him to the Mid­dle East.

As the ex­ec­u­tive chef at Alila Ja­bal Akhdar, Wilkin­son will over­see its on­go­ing com­mit­ment to sus­tain­abil­ity. All food waste pro­duced by the ho­tel is com­posted and pro­vides veg­etable waste oil back to the ho­tel’s or­ganic farm. In ad­di­tion, the restau­rant has built its menu en­tirely around sus­tain­able prac­tices, farm-to-ta­ble meals, as well as waste and plas­tic re­duc­tion.
