The Team

Elmar Prambs

Executive Chef

At the helm of Four Seasons Hotel Austin’s kitchen since 1986, Elmar is responsible for the culinary direction of all food and beverage outlets – including banquets, room service, Live Oak and Ciclo. In this role, Elmar particularly enjoys introducing diners to unique flavor combinations and stunning presentations, a skill that has earned him an outstanding reputation and loyal following. Prior to joining Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts in 1977 (at Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver), he completed an apprenticeship with a German master chef and worked in several prestigious kitchens across Europe and Canada.

Abril Galindo

Executive Sous Chef

Born and raised in Guadalajara, Mexico, Abril's early exposure to gourmet meals was limited. Her first taste of a truly well-prepared dish opened her eyes to the joy of cooking. In 2010, Abril joined Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita as a culinary intern, a role that allowed her to rotate through a variety of positions in the kitchen. After working at several Mexico restaurants and hotels, Abril was recruited to rejoin Four Seasons Hotel Austin. Her work ethic, creativity and passion for cooking quickly became apparent, eventually leading to her promotion as executive sous chef in 2017.

Richard Sandoval


During the past 18 years, Richard's career as a chef-restaurateur has evolved to encompass being a culinary consultant, television personality, cookbook author and brand ambassador. RS Hospitality is now a leading restaurant group with over 45 restaurants around the world. Richard combines authentic Latin ingredients with international flavors and inventive techniques. His methods create new and unexpected cuisines such as modern and coastal Mexican, Latin-Asian, Peruvian and Pan-Latin.
