Appointed Executive Chef
At Four Seasons Hotel Alexandria at San Stefano, Egypt
Chef Olsen began his culinary career in 1989, working as a chef for a popular fish restaurant in Washington State before joining the city’s prestigious Bellevue Athletic Club and Hotel as Banquet Cook. After five years’ experience and having honed his culinary skills, he joined Four Seasons Hotel Olympic, Seattle, in September 1994. The knowledge and experience he gained at Four Seasons Hotel Olympic was invaluable, and subsequently led to his appointment as Sous Chef later in 1999. In 2001 Olsen transferred to Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara in the same capacity. Olsen’s proficiency and passion for his trade resulted in his promotion to Executive Sous Chef at Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverley Hills in 2005, followed by a move to the Middle East and a similar role at Four Seasons Hotel Cairo at Nile Plaza in 2007.
