Congratulations to David Miras of Le Méridien, Fujairah, for winning the Sous Chef of the Year category at the recent Caterer Middle East Awards.
Le Méridien’s fine chef was praised at the recent Park Hyatt Hotel Dubai ceremony for his innovation, organizational skills, his mentoring of others and his special magic in turning local seafood into delicious dishes.
In accepting the prestigious award, David paid tribute to the many chefs who have inspired him and the great team at Le Méridien, led by the General Manager, Patrick Antaki.
David told those gathered the news of his imminent departure from Fujairah and the Middle East:
“Since being nominated I have decided to move to the Philippines to work as an executive chef, so this is a great award to take away with me.”
This is a loss for Le Méridien and Fujairah as David has been with the Al Aqah hotel since its launch.
We extend congratulations to David Miras on receiving this culinary crown and we wish him all the best as he moves to a new role in the Philippines.
Sous Chef of the Year Crowned, Hotelier Middle East.Com, 28 September 2010.
