Frederic Morineau, Executive Chef
Born in France and educated in both France and England, Frederic Morineau has presided in the kitchens of some of Europe and the Caribbean’s finest four and five star dining establishments. When an ad in a newspaper attracted him to a chef’s position at restaurant in Aspen, Colorado, he secured the job and moved from Europe to Colorado. While living in Aspen, he was invited by a co-worker to visit a Ritz-Carlton hotel which had just opened. As soon as he walked in, Chef Morineau knew he wanted to work at a Ritz-Carlton hotel. Since then, he has overseen many Ritz-Carlton premium culinary divisions including those of The Ritz-Carlton Buckhead, Atlanta, Sarasota and now Grand Cayman, where he has won numerous service and leadership accolades. In 2011 he was invited into the ranks of one of the most prestigious associations of chefs in the world: the Maîtres Cuisiniers de France. He is only the second Maître Cuisinier presently working in the Caribbean.
