Italian chef Leonardo Di Clemente, who has been working as executive chef at Four Seasons group for 20 years, has been appointed as executive chef at the Four Seasons Bahrain Bay in Bahrain. As Executive Chef, he will oversee the hotel’s three dining venues: Bay View, Bahrain Bay Kitchen, and Beach Deck, as well as in-room dining and catering, and will lead the kitchen team to maintain the standards of each venue, especially during events.
“While I started my journey rooted in Italy’s rich culinary heritage and Mediterranean cuisine, travelling has influenced my culinary knowledge in substantial ways, allowing me to experience new flavours, cooking techniques and cultures from Asia, Europe and beyond,” commented Di Clemente. “What excites me about starting my journey in the Kingdom of Bahrain is the opportunity to embrace the culinary history of the region, particularly with its unique flavour combinations and ingredients including Arabic spices.”
As well as the venues under Di Clemente, Four Seasons Bahrain Bay is home to both Cut by Wolfgang Puck and Re Asian Cuisine by Wolfgang Puck.
