Hamid Hosseini - SENIOR EXECUTIVE CHEF
Irani born Chef Hamid Hosseini started his culinary journey in Tehran. As young boys, his brother (Chef Mohammad Hosseini) and he were accustomed to gatherings, where their family chats over a cup of tea, some sweets, or a full meal. Young Hamid and his brother often helped their mother in the kitchen preparing dinners in traditional Persian cooking. She has become an inspiration in their culinary journey ever since. Pursuing his fascinations over the classic cooking techniques and a wide variety of Persian herbs, Hamid continued his journey at Payame Noor University where he graduated as a top student. After graduation, he started working in various styles of Persian kitchens; from traditional kitchens in Tehran, haute-cuisine kitchens in Dubai and modern Persian kitchen in Kuala Lumpur.
Uniting his techniques and knowledge, Chef Hamid developed his style of cooking, New Persian cuisine. He believes in respecting high-quality, authentic Persian ingredients while using contemporary cooking techniques to extract the best flavours. He aims to heighten the bar of Persian cuisine and to lead the introduction of New Persian cuisine to the world.
