With an impressive culinary background and a passion for creating extraordinary dining experiences, Chef Eduardo is set to raise the Grand Cayman resort’s already acclaimed food & beverage offerings to new heights.

 

“We’re extremely fortunate to have Chef Eduardo now enhancing our culinary offerings at Seafire,” said Steven Andre, Kimpton Seafire Resort + Spa’s General Manager. “His dedication to blending unique flavors with global styles will bring a fresh perspective to our guests’ dining options.”

Here, Chef Eduardo oversaw eight managers and a staff of 100+ team members, who all reported to him as the property’s culinary leader.

“My mission is to provide an exceptional culinary experience for all Seafire guests and Cayman residents, and to showcase the rich flavors of local and international cuisine,” said Chef Eduardo. “Since opening, this resort has built an esteemed reputation as one of the Caribbean’s most dynamic F&B destinations. I’m excited for the challenge of taking it to the next level.”
