A chef with 20 years of international kitchen experience, the appointment marks a promotion for King, who most recently served as the Executive Chef at Four Seasons Resorts Bali, responsible for both Jimbaran Bay and Sayan properties.
"I am looking forward to welcoming Pasquo to our Caribbean paradise," says Gonzalo Güelman Ros, General Manager of Four Seasons Resort Nevis. "His passion for teaching and hands-on leadership style, along with a plethora of ideas and innovations and an expertise in food photography will serve us all well here in Nevis."
As Director of Food and Beverage, Pasquo will oversee all food and beverage operations, focusing on innovation, creativity and providing extraordinary culinary experiences for guests. He arrives just in time to launch the new EsQuilina and crowned monkey RUM BAR on December 10, 2018 as part of the Resort's multi-million dollar enhancement project that will unveil Nevis' fresh take on a timeless Caribbean experience.
A native of Australia, Pasquo developed his culinary skills in some of Australia's best restaurants as well as in high-profile hotels in Shanghai and Dubai. Most recently, his creativity, focus on the best ingredients and down-to-earth approach made their mark at Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay and Sayan, where he spent four years as the Resorts' Executive Chef. One of his biggest achievements was launching the Sundara restaurant's unique "Customised Dining" concept, a flexible style of dining offering guests maximum choice to order a range of different dishes.
"Nothing inspires me more than food and beverage and the endless possibilities that they create," says Pasquo. "Coming to Four Seasons Resort Nevis at this exciting time in its history will not only allow me to make an impact on the new food and beverage concepts and programs, but also further develop my passion by discovering new flavours and learning a new culture."
