HCMC - Le Méridien Saigon has announced the appointment of Simone Murru as its new executive chef, responsible for leading the hotel’s kitchen team of all dining outlets.

Chef Simone has 27 years dedicated to the culinary fields, starting from the regional Italian cuisine and expanding his gastronomy experience across European and international borders. He spent most of those years deepening his knowledge in the fine dining sector, with the notably 13 years of his career devoting to Jet Hotel and Antica Zecca, a historical Michelin star restaurant in Italy.

Besides working in restaurants, Chef Simone also spent five years as chef instructor at Italian Culinary Institute for Foreigners, where he dedicated to training and fuelling the passion in the young chefs from around the world.

Chef Simone joined the Marriott family four years ago, at the Sheraton Kuwait, The Luxury Collection hotel, contributing to its restaurant’s title as the best Italian dining spot in the city.

“I’m excited to move on to a different country and work for a new brand, where I can share my skills and knowledge with a new culinary team, and at the same time explore various aspects of the local dishes and dining culture. This brought me to Le Méridien Saigon,” says the chef.

Simone yearns to explore more of the fascinating diversity of Asian gastronomies, after being captivated by the dining cultures of Japan, South Korea and the Middle East. He chose Vietnam as the next destination for his gastronomy journey, excited to create the dishes with new blends and twists, at the same time inspiring the teams at Le Méridien Saigon.
