My name is John Ambari. My journey as Chef started in 1990 at Block Hotels’ special training program. After completing the program, I was employed at Nyali Beach Hotel (Block Hotel) as a cook. Two years later, in 1995 I joined Hard Rock Café as a head cook; and then I moved to Sun N’ Sand Hotel and served as Head Cook there as well. In 1997, I moved to Tiwi Beach Resort and served as a Sous Chef.
In 1999, I was promoted to the position of Executive Sous Chef; and in the same year, I went to Morocco to learn how to cook French and Arabian cuisine. In the year 2000, I became the Executive Chef for Tiwi Beach Resort. And in the year 2005, I was obliged to be in German to learn more about the German Küche (Kitchen).
In the year 2006, I was in Austria where I lectured the Executive Chefs on African cuisine and spices. In 2015, I joined PrideInn Paradise as an Executive Chef; and a year later was elevated as Regional Group Chef of Mombasa. To date, I am the Regional Executive Chef of PrideInn Group Hotels.
