YUSUKE AOKIExecutive Pastry Chef
Multiple award-winning Executive Pastry Chef Yusuke Aoki discovered his talent for dessert-making at a French pastry boutique in Shiga, Japan. The pastry chef and chocolatier honed his skills at hotels and patisseries around the world, including a stint at Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay, before returning home to Japan to oversee the Hotel’s pastry program.
“The ‘whoa’ look on someone’s face when they taste my dessert makes all the effort worth it.”
