Chef Al-Aridi brings his delicious and divine pastries to
Four Seasons Riyadh

Four Seasons Riyadh appoints new pastry chef

RIYADH, June 23, 2016

Four Seasons Hotel Riyadh has welcomed Ramzi Al-Aridi as the property's new Oriental pastry chef.

Chef Al-Aridi’s love for pastries started early in life, as it often does for esteemed chefs.  He said: “When I was a child I spent my free time with my mother in the kitchen doing pastries and trying out new desserts. I always looked forward to that one day of the week where my mother would allow me some time with her at the kitchen to help her. My mother’s teachings and effort instigated my techniques and dedication, and shaped me into the chef I am today.”

Chef Al-Aridi’s passion took a serious turn when he opened his own pastry shop in Lebanon. “I grew up with the goal of opening my own pastry shop; to reach that goal I had to finish my studies first in order to be fully committed to my shop.”

After almost 11 years of running his own pastry shop, chef Al-Aridi decided to switch things up and move to work in the hospitality industry. “I had gained sufficient experience that enriched my knowledge in pastries, and then I felt like it was the right time to begin a new chapter in my life," said the chef. To begin his new journey chef Al-Aridi started working at the renowned Hotel Phoenicia Intercontinental Lebanon, starting as junior chef and then being promoted to Oriental pastry chef. After 13 years of working at the Intercontinental, chef Al-Aridi joined the Four Seasons family as an Oriental pastry chef.

Guests wishing to have a taste of the chef's Oriental pastries can stop by at the pastry corner found at Elements restaurant, which is located on the hotel’s ground floor. - TradeArabia News Service
