Six Senses Fort Barwara has appointed Stephen Jones as its new Executive Chef, spicing up the culinary experiences at the royal palace-turned-luxury resort in Rajasthan, India.
Stephen has under his belt nearly three decades of experience in travelling and cooking for exclusive brands such as The Oberoi Group, Aman Resorts, and Six Senses in the Asia Pacific and Middle East. Guided by the philosophy of ‘Less is More’, he prefers a simple, natural approach to food that places a heavy emphasis on nutrition and overall well-being. Along with a thorough understanding of contemporary culinary trends, Stephen has garnered extensive skills in organic, unprocessed, and plant-based cuisine.
In his new position at Six Senses Fort Barwara, Stephen will oversee the varied dining experiences at Six Senses Fort Barwara, offering a perfect amalgamation of world cuisine, local Rajasthani and pan-Indian cuisine.
He will play a pivotal role at the resort, for his extensive knowledge of global culinary trends, expertise in developing unique dining experiences and the sustainability approach that resonates with the ‘Eat with Six Senses’ philosophy.
For the day-to-day operations, he continues to build on the sustainable brand ethos of Six Senses, leveraging the resort’s farm and organic garden to produce seasonal menus using local produce, with delicious flavors and inspirations from his own travels and work experience.
He will continue to work on elevating the current range of offerings, working with local farmers and producers, who have the same ethical standards as the Six Senses brand.
