The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali takes great pleasure to announce the recent appointment of Anil Kapoor as Executive Chef. He has arrived on the island direct from an 18-month stint in a similar role at The Yacht Club Canberra, a multi-faceted venue with a high-end parliamentary clientele.
Born and educated in India, Chef Anil began his culinary career as a trainee at Grand Hyatt New Dehli. After showing great promise, he was promoted to the position of Commis Chef in 1999 where he perfected his skills in the preparation of fine dining European cuisine. Chef Anil then enjoyed a brief stint as Chef de Partie at Leela Kempinski Mumbai. This was followed by time as Sous Chef at Grand Hyatt Mumbai, whilst he simultaneously studied for his Bachelor of Arts degree from Delhi University.
In an effort to broaden his portfolio, Chef Anil relocated to Australia in 2007 after accepting a position at Novotel Canberra. However, he soon moved into a more senior role as Sous Chef for Crowne Plaza Canberra where he embraced the challenge of greater responsibility. From 2010 to 2017, Chef Anil was the Head Chef for The Hellenic Club of Canberra where he managed banquet kitchen operations for five busy venues.
Now as Executive Chef at The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali, Chef Anil is in charge of culinary services for several distinctive restaurants as well as banqueting for events held at the adjacent Bali International Convention Centre. Highly experienced in overseeing busy kitchen environments, Chef Anil is suitably impressed by the comradely and creativity exhibited by his new Balinese team.
“Chef Anil has joined us just in time for the peak summer season as we prepare to welcome seasoned travelers from all over the world and anticipate their diverse culinary needs. Being well-versed in Indian, European and modern Australian cuisines, I am confident that Chef Anil will bring lots of fresh ideas to reinvigorate our menus and regular food promotions,” says Mr. Oriol Montal, General Manager of The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali.
