Chef Edgar Hurtado, Chef De Cuisine for Garden, the Peruvian restaurant at JW Marriott Marquis, brings a wealth of knowledge and creativity into the kitchen. Originally from Peru, Chef Hurtado’s culinary adventure started when he was young boy often visiting his grandmother’s restaurant who would encourage him to experiment with flavours and ingredients from an early age. Chef Hurtado holds a strong passion for Peruvian food as well as culture which has inevitably taken him around the world, namely the UAE (South sea’s resort in Florida, and the Grand Hotel in Michigan), to the La Rosa Nautica in Lima and now, Dubai. Working at both La Serre and The Act in Dubai, Chef Hurtado is now responsible for managing the day to day running of the kitchen at Garden, motivating his team and adding his culinary flare to the dishes.
