The Cove Rotana is excited to announce Edwin Gomes appointment as Executive Chef. He will oversee 6 bars and 2 restaurants including the Italian-Mediterranean signature restaurant: “Basilico”.
A SEASONED PROFESSIONAL
Originally from Kolkata India, Edwin’s passion for the culinary arts comes as no surprise as he hails from a family of Chefs. One of his fondest memories includes helping his mother in the kitchen at an early age.
After a myriad of apprenticeships, Edwin fine-tuned his craft at The Park Hotels in Kolkata, India. His career soon took him across the globe to work with brands such as Hilton, JA Resorts and Spa, Royal M and Royal Caribbean Cruise Liners.
As Edwin’s expertise grew, his culinary journey enabled him to travel to the Middle East (Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Ras al Khaimah and Saudi Arabia), the Atlantic, Nordic and Pacific Coast as well as his most recent post in Egypt’s Casa Cooks El Gouna.
ON THE HORIZON
“I look forward at setting marks to achieve the unachieved, simply put luxury is not just a statement, but rather it’s something you literally must taste!” adding, “There are prime standards to set and consistently meet, one of them being freshness. Freshness has always been vital for me; I live up to our ‘farm to fork’ philosophy and quality produce is the key”.
As Chef Edwin marks his footprint on the Cove, join in on his journey by discovering amazing flavours from Basilico’s ala cart offerings and renowned Saturday Brunch.
