Hyatt launched its Good Taste Series 2018 EAME/SWA on October 7, 2018 to reinforce the group’s reputation as culinary stronghold across the Middle East and furthers the brand’s mission to invest in its people.
The competition series is now in its fourth year since inception and second year as a global initiative. Through this initiative, Hyatt as a company is aiming to develop personal growth and career development with the series itself cultivating culinary talent from Hyatt hotels worldwide, a statement said.
Encouraging the development of both its personnel and F&B repertoire, the Series competition will see chefs compete in their respective regional rounds, followed by the regional finals, where six chosen winners will go head-to-head at the global finals held in Hong Kong in 2019.
A statement from Hyatt said: “The closed competition will provide a platform for chefs to share experience-driven knowledge and inspire one another, through mutual creativity. By giving motivated individuals, regardless of job title or gender, the chance to put their skills to the test Hyatt shines a positive light on the hospitality industry as a whole, the statement further added”.
The regional rounds will be taking place from October 23-27 at host property Grand Hyatt Abu Dhabi. This will be followed by regional final at Grand Hyatt Abu Dhabi from November 16-21, 2018. The finals will be held in Asia Pacific in the first quarter of 2019.
