Hyatt Capital Gate Abu Dhabi Welcomes New Executive Chef
Executive Chef Guillem Pla Camps
The Hyatt Capital Gate Abu Dhabi is pleased to announce the arrival of Executive Chef Guillem Pla Camps, whom will be leading the transformation of the award-winning 18 Degrees and the hotel’s catering operations.
Camps brings a 20+year culinary experience journey to the F&B operation. Starting in Spain, he nurtured his cooking styles and influences through kitchens in Barcelona, Cannes, Bahrain, Doha, and Andorra, to name a few. He owned a Michelin-starred restaurant in Spain, and traveled to the Middle East to expand his fine dining and Arabic cuisine styles.
Chef Camps plans to elevate the 18 Degrees concept into a fine casual dining experience, with special focus on creating menus that highlight locally grown and sourced ingredients. Diners can expect approachable cuisine with infused flavors from across the globe, including traditional Arabic spice profiles that reflect the hotel’s creative expression of local culture.
Chef embraced a culinary career after learning how to cook as a child, and takes inspiration from chef Joan Rocca. Chef feels strongly that cooking should be imbibed with love, passion, and care- and that the customer feedback is crucial to the plate’s success.
