Online PR News – 17-October-2012 – Ho Chi Minh City – With 14 years of extensive culinary experience, Park Hyatt Saigon is pleased to announce the appointment of Marco Torre as the new Executive Sous Chef in charge of the Italian restaurant, Opera, and the Events Kitchen.
From Sanremo, Italy, Chef Marco began his culinary career working in a number of Michelin-star restaurants throughout different regions of Italy, from Garda Lake to Porto Cervo. Starting as a Commis de Cuisine, Chef Marco worked his up way up to Sous Chef de Cuisine, honing his craft and earning his reputation for refined Italian food and professionalism within his cooking domain.
Making a continental leap, Chef Marco decided to take his first post in Asia with Grand Hyatt Hong Kong in 2006. He spent five years at the legendary restaurant, Grissini, and one year in charge of the Banquets and Events Kitchen. He now brings his creative mastery to two kitchens at Park Hyatt Saigon, maintaining Opera's iconic Italian cuisine, and custom tailoring Asian and international menus for catered events.
Dedicated to delivering new gastronomic pleasure to guests, Chef Marco's cooking-style features novel combinations of ingredients, while paying homage a very authentic way of food preparation.
Surprising guests with aesthetic appeal, he orchestrates different cultural flavours inspired by his world travels.
Chef Marco's goal is to maintain Park Hyatt Saigon's position as the premier and most innovative destination for dining in Ho Chi Minh City. In leading the highly competitive market for restaurants in Saigon, outside catering and banquet service, his experience will lead to new creations and continue the hotel's commitment to culinary excellence.
Chef Marco has implemented a new seasonal à la carte menu, and will continue to debut a new menu every two weeks to bring even more variety and culinary flourish to Ho Chi Minh City.
