Appointed Executive Chef
At Grand Hotel Kempinski Riga, Latvia
Kekec was on his way to Dubai when he made a last-minute decision of the heart to move to Riga as he felt he could not turn down the offer of working at the Grand Hotel Kempinski Riga, which he describes as a 'Rolls Royce' hotel.
Kekec has cooked in five-star kitchens all across the globe including South Africa, Dubai, Bahrain, Kazakhstan, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Italy.
Kekec has worked with the best in the world and also developed a passion for Italian cuisine after working at three-star Michelin restaurants in Milan. After two years as the
Executive Chef of the Kempinski Barbaros Bay Bodrum, he wanted to continue working for the Kempinski group, and bring his international flavours to Latvia's capital.
