Driven by passion and led by knowledge

Chef Joe Rizk

Driven by passion and led by knowledge, Joe Rizk’s infatuation with culinary arts started at an early age. Growing up in a family who was into hospitality, Joe spent his childhood in the Hotel’s kitchen learning from chefs, experimenting with new recipes, and living in a world of exquisite favors, invigorating aromas, fresh ingredients, and sophisticated taste.

Infinite Passion

His fondness for refined cuisine grew to a much bigger passion; a passion that soon evolved into a profession. Today, Joe Rizk is renowned in the region for his culinary experience and for his particularly high standards. He is also among a handful of Pastry Chefs to master the art of Patisserie and other culinary techniques, as well as for concocting all of his recipes with premium and fresh ingredients.
This mix between product knowledge and unique taste helped Joe evolve professionally from a full-time Chef into one of the region’s top culinary consultants, menu designers, recipe creators, and concept developers.
