Chef David Rejhon Shines Among the World's Best

The Artisan restaurant at the Prague Marriott Hotel is pleased to announce that their chef David Rejhon has received the prestigious "Chef of the Year" award in the Marriott Premium Hotels category. He received this distinguished award at the recent EMEA Operations 2024 conference held in Barcelona.

Chefs from more than 1,000 EMEA Marriott hotels compete for the "Chef of the Year" award based on the restaurant's performance in gastronomy, economy, and most importantly, the feedback from guests that Marriott closely monitors.     

David Rejhon scored with his passion for sustainability and zero-waste approach, which constitute the basic pillars of his work. Examples of his innovative approach include the production of their own honey from the rooftop beehives, a herb cultivator, a greenhouse and own composter. In addition, David also uses the Japanese art technique of Kintsugi to repair broken plates and he occupies himself with preserving and fermenting food on a daily basis, effectively minimizing food waste. These sustainable and innovative practices were a key factor in earning David the 'Chef of the Year' award.

"It is a great honour and privilege to receive such an award and I am extremely grateful for the support of the entire team at The Artisan. Our joint efforts and commitment to sustainability distinguish us, and it's a pleasure to be a part of the Marriott family that heeds these values," says David Rejhon, Executive Chef at The Artisan.

Robert Grader, General Manager of the Prague Marriott Hotel, adds: "I am very proud of David and the entire team at The Artisan. Their innovative approach to sustainability is an inspiration to our entire group, and their award is a well-deserved recognition of their long-term hard work."

The Artisan looks forward to its successful future, and it will continue to provide guests with a world-class gastronomy in line with the values of responsible and sustainable cuisine. More information about The Artisan restaurant can be found here:
