Kuwait\ s Jumeirah Messilah appoints two new chefs.

Jumeirah Messilah Beach Hotel & Spa in Kuwait has appointed two new chefs to its culinary team.

Italian native Rosario Seminatore has been appointed as the chef de cuisine at Italian restaurant Olio while Daniel Irvine is the new junior executive sous chef at upscale steakhouse Pepper.

Seminatore has over 33 years' experience in hotels, resorts and restaurants across Africa, Asia, Europe and the Middle East.

He began his culinary training at an early age of 17, working as a commis chef in the northern Italian municipality of Caselle Torinese, close to the city of Turin.


His appointment at Jumeirah Messilah Beach Hotel & Spa - the Jumeirah Group's first GCC property outside the UAE - marks the chef's return to Kuwait, having earlier held the position of executive sous chef and manager at another five-star hotel in the country.

UK-born Irvine began his culinary career 21 years ago in his native county, working as a commis. He has since worked at a number of restaurants across the UK, before moving to Egypt.

He joins the Kuwait property from sister hotel Jumeirah Etihad Towers in Abu Dhabi, where he worked across four of the iconic hotel's restaurants as a sous chef for more than four years.

Most recently he was part of the pre-opening team at Pearls by Michael Caines.
