Christian Gradnitzer becomes Jumeirah’s new corporate culinary director


February 16, 2014 | By RetailME Bureau

Dubai-based Jumeirah Group has announced the appointment of former Burj Al Arab sous chef Christian Gradnitzer as the corporate culinary director of its new restaurants and bars division (RnB). Gradnitzer will be responsible for the future development of the culinary offering and innovation of the global luxury brand’s food and beverage (F&B) portfolio.

Gradnitzer’s career started in Austria and nearby Switzerland before stints as junior sous chef at The Dorchester Hotel, London and later chef de partie for Cunard Cruise Lines. In 2000 he joined Jumeirah Group and the team of the Burj Al Arab as sous chef and returned to Dubai after a spell in New York to become executive chef at Jumeirah Emirates Towers and was later appointed to Madinat Jumeirah in 2009 to operate the resort’s culinary and stewarding operation.

All former F&B departments now report to the RnB division at Jumeirah, which is split into five pillars – Hotels; Restaurants; Innovation and Concept Development; Business Development; and Support. Jumeirah RnB plans to develop restaurant brands which may be operated within its hotels in the UAE and globally, but which can also operate as standalone outlets or as outlets in hotels managed by other operators.
