Rosewood Tucker's Point® Welcomes Guido Brambilla As New Executive Chef
August 9, 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.
