Rosewood Tucker's Point Welcomes Guido Brambilla as New Executive Chef
Aug. 09, 2012
BERMUDA - Guido Brambilla has been appointed Executive Chef at Rosewood Tucker’s Point, Bermuda’s premier resort. Brambilla joins the Rosewood Tucker’s Point culinary team with more than 20 years of experience in fine dining around the globe. Most recently he was executive chef at Bermuda’s Elbow Beach Hotel.
Born in Milan, Italy, Chef Brambilla began his culinary career working part-time in kitchens while studying Law and Business Management in England. Sharing his entire family’s passion for food and wine, he attended Le Cordon Bleu in London in 1998 and enjoyed numerous apprenticeships at Michelin star restaurants in Northern Italy. He then spent two years in Southeast Asia learning the secrets of Thai and Vietnamese cooking before returning to Milan in 2003 to open his own, widely-acclaimed restaurant, Livet.
In 2008, Chef Brambilla sold Livet, and headed to Reethi Rah in the Maldives to cook for international, high-profile clients and to learn Indian, Arabic and Japanese cuisine. His next stop was Muscat, Oman working in Al Bustan Palace followed by his move to Bermuda three years ago. In his new role at Rosewood Tucker’s Point, Chef Brambilla will create a variety of new signature dishes with Mediterranean and Asian influences while also utilizing the wide array of produce found in Bermuda.
“I love cooking techniques that incorporate various cuisines and cultures that I have experienced during my travels,” says Chef Brambilla. “One of my favorite ways to cook is to source the best local ingredients, then prepare them using foreign herbs, spices and methods from other countries so our guests get a taste of Bermuda mixed with other culinary traditions. It’s the perfect balance of the two,” adds Chef Brambilla.
Tucker’s Point is a 240-acre residential and resort community with breathtaking vistas of Castle Harbour, Harrington Sound and the Atlantic Ocean. Site of Bermuda’s first new luxury hotel in 40 years and its first-ever fractional ownership clubs in addition to whole ownership homes, the community affords residents and guests exceptional recreational facilities. These include the acclaimed 18-hole Tucker’s Point Golf Course, tennis courts and a croquet lawn, Bermuda’s longest private pink-sand beach, a 12,000-square foot spa and a fine dining restaurant in its 100-guest room hotel. In April 2011, Tucker’s Point joined prestigious Rosewood Hotels & Resorts. It has earned accolades and awards from a host of prestigious sponsors, including Condé Nast Traveler (2010 Hot List, 2011 Gold List, 2011 Top Resorts in the Atlantic), Travel + Leisure (2011 500 World’s Best Hotels), Elite Traveler (2010 Top 101 Hotel Suites), Andrew Harper’s Hideaway Report 2011 Grand Award and Hotel Manager of the Year Award, and The Bermudian Magazine (2010 Building Design Award.)
