Grand Cayman’s Kimpton Seafire Resort + Spa has expanded its culinary team.
The Seven Mile Beach property has added Executive Sous Chef Christian Gonzalez Ponce to the team, while promoting Chef Andre Wilson to Banquet Chef and Chef Abhimanyu “Abhi” Giuliani to Chef de Partie.
The trio will “help to further elevate Seafire’s acclaimed restaurants & bars program at the resort’s three restaurants,” the property said in a statement.
“Since our opening, Kimpton Seafire has established itself as a true culinary destination, and we’re thrilled to introduce our guests to Chef Christian, Chef Andre, and Chef Abhi’s dynamic flavors and innovative techniques,” said Steve Andre, the resort’s General Manager. “We’re looking forward to seeing — and tasting — what they have in store in their new roles.”
Gonzalez Ponce’s resume includes working at the world-renowned El Bulli restaurant in Spain. He also opened an indigenous-Spanish eatery in Chile.
Wilson has worked with the Kimpton Seafire since 2016, where he was part of the pre-opening team.
Abhi has served with the property since 2019; he will oversee the creation of the property’s pastries.
