Following its February launch, Dubai’s Al Asr Al Dahabi Café & Restaurant has announced the appointment of Ehab Mahmoud Mohamed Ahmed Nasef as its executive chef.
Nasef joins Al Asr Al Dahabi with over 19 years of regional experience. He started his culinary journey in 2001 at the Grand Hyatt in Egypt, where he worked for over a decade. He then took a position at Hilton Kuwait Resort Salmiya as a sous chef. While there, he managed the French, Oriental, Italian, Turkish and Spanish kitchens, in addition to the Arabic kitchen.
Nasef was also responsible for the execution of banquets, developing the team and providing the highest quality service across the hotel’s restaurants.
Nasef moved to the UAE in 2018 to take his most challenging position to date, stepping into the role of head chef at Raffles, Emirates Park Resort. Reporting directly to the general manager, he was tasked with maintaining the world-class service and quality the brand is known for, while developing new menu items and ensuring the smooth operations between relevant key departments.
At the end of 2019, Nasef joined Al Asr Al Dahabi as the executive chef and played an instrumental role in launching the new brand in Dubai.
