Chef Vincenzo Emma will elevate standards at the Italian restaurant in Ras Al Khaimah
Chef Emma will be entrusted to elevate standards at the Italian eatery and put it on the culinary map as one of the finest restaurants in the Middle East.
He brings more than a decade of experience to the role, most of that spent working with Italian or Mediterranean cuisine. In 2010 after completing his formal education he immediately stepped into the role of sous chef at Mediterraneo Ristorante E Catering, where he oversaw the main course and menu development.
Six years on, he left Italy for London, working at Dalla Terra Wine Restaurant as head chef. In this position, chef Emma managed menu development, devised daily signature dishes and handled event catering operations.
It wasn’t until recently he moved into a culinary post within a hotel; in 2019 he worked with Shangri-La Hotel & Resort in Muscat. Here he was senior sous chef at Capri Court, working with lauded chef Marco De Vincentis to hone his Italian expertise.
“We are delighted to have Vincenzo join our stellar team at Azure. We look forward to bringing a brand-new set of Italian-inspired gastronomic experiences to our guests at Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah.” says Marco Pedna, hotel manager of Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah.
Emma has replaced Matteo Dayem, the former chef de cuisine who is no longer with the hotel.
