Grenada’s Mount Cinnamon Resort and Beach Club has appointed Cristian Bassi A. [sic] as the resort’s Executive Chef.

Originally from Italy, Chef Bassi brings over two decades of culinary experience from kitchens around the world, including Egypt, Jamaica, St. Lucia, Saint Kitts and Nevis and the Dominican Republic.

“I am thrilled to join the acclaimed Mount Cinnamon team,” Bassi said in a statement. “Through utilizing local ingredients and spices, I look forward to expanding the dining experience in celebration of the flavorful country of Grenada.”

Bassi started his career in Jamaica as Sous Chef at Half Moon Resort in Montego Bay followed by working as the Executive Sous Chef at Sandals Resort.

“We are very excited that Cristian has joined the team here at Mount Cinnamon to elevate our guests culinary experience to the next level,” said Mark Kitchen, general manager of Mount Cinnamon. “He will indeed be a great asset in training and leading our young team who excel in the use of our local produce and spices.”

The boutique Mount Cinnamon is set on a prime parcel from the sand to the hills above Grenada’s world-famous Grand Anse Beach.
