We heard the sad news about our friend John Hui’s passing, the long time manager of many U.S. teams.
As a well known Executive Pastry Chef, in his thirty years of activity, he gained many awards. Hui worked as Corporate Pastry Chef in some famous resort in Pebble Beach, Monterey, and previously in prestigious Hotels as the Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, the Hyatt Regency and the Marriott in San Francisco, the Westin Maui Hotel in Hawaii.
Rumor has it that John Hui was the most beloved Pastry Chef by the Hollywood actresses. With his good-natured, yet strong, personality John Hui loved sharing his knowledge teaching or partecipating at fundraising workshops.
Travelling he got in touch with culinary cultures from all over the world: China, Singapore, Manila, Japan, Germany, Italy and New Zealand.
John Hui was a member of the American Academy of Chefs and many of his works have been published in eminent gastronomical magazines and culinary books.
Among the awards, we like to mention the legendary Antonin Carême medal, the golden and silver medals won at the Culinary Olympics in Erfurt, Germany, the honorable mention at Gelato World Cup in 2012, the AAC Joseph Amendola international award in 2010, and the ACF presidential medal.
Our thoughts are with Mrs. Hui and with the USA team.
