It’s with great excitement that Four Seasons Resort and Residences Whistler announces Sajish Kumar as the property’s new Executive Chef. After nearly four years with Four Seasons Resort Whistler, previously as Executive Sous Chef, Chef Kumar is now bringing his unique and impeccable skill set to lead the culinary experience at Braidwood Tavern and SIDECUT Steakhouse.
Developing an interest in cooking for others from an early age, Chef Kumar transformed a passion into a profession. He brings more than two decades of dining expertise to his new position with time spent in India, United Arab Emirates, Oman, Qatar and Canada with acclaimed luxury properties including Taj, Grand Hyatt, Ritz Carlton, and Four Seasons.
Internationally regarded for his comprehensive knowledge of cuisine presented with contemporary flair, Chef Kumar looks to highlight Whistler’s supernatural beauty through each and every dish.
“The Sea to Sky bounty is really the inspiration behind each dish here,” says Chef Kumar. “For me, it’s the quality of ingredients – mainly sourced from local producers and farmers – that is of the utmost importance in providing an exceptional culinary experience.”
Managing all aspects of full-service kitchen and banquet facility, developing lunch, dinner, and dessert menus, Chef Kumar not only brings a distinctive culinary philosophy but trusted leadership to all aspects of the property’s epicurean service, together with the rest of the culinary team.
Chef Kumar is thrilled to be bringing one-of-a-kind culinary events and offerings to the Resort, each designed to celebrate the food and culture unique to Whistler. The entire team at Four Seasons Whistler anticipates many seasons of excellence from Chef Kumar.
