"The five-star Media Rotana, Dubai, is pleased to announce the appointment of Anders Groenholm as its new Executive Chef.
Anders has more than 30 years of culinary experience and numerous awards under his belt, all gained during his extensive career spanning 10 countries including Denmark, Egypt, Turkey, Australia, China, South Korea, Vietnam, Oman and the UAE.
Born in Asia and growing up in Europe made Anders believe that honest individuality is as important as traditional heritage – a belief that enables him to approach cooking with borderless creativity. He is driven by the desire to create multiple new culinary experiences in presentations and flavours that constantly wow his clientele. His foray into the world of cooking was spurred by his mother’s words at an early age inspiring him to become a chef after which he enrolled into the Hotel and Restaurant College in Copenhagen, Denmark.
In his new role, Anders will oversee the kitchen operations for the all-day dining restaurant, Channels, as well as Nelson’s, Prego’s, The Terrace and the private catering and banquet unit.
