Amol Agarwal has been named Executive Chef of The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach, responsible for five distinguished Food & Beverage outlets, banquets and the luxury oceanfront hotel's entire culinary operation.

In 1993 after graduating out of High School, Amol set his career in motion enrolling in the Institute of Hotel Management and Culinary Arts in Chennai, India. In addition to his passion, Amol discovered that he had a natural talent for mixing different flavors and creating flavorful dishes, which solidified his decision to simply focus on becoming a chef. Concurrently, Amol worked part time at the Taj Connemara Hotel to hone his culinary skills learning various cooking techniques, cuisines and organization. After earning his culinary arts degree, Amol spent the next four years working as the Chef de Partie at the Four Seasons in Goa, India and Khuda Huraa in the Maldives.

He learned early on that being a chef meant more than creating a pretty dish. According to Amol, What makes good food "great" is the love and passion you put into each dish and ingredient.

In 2000, Chef Amol's career took him to the United States, where he led a 15 million dollar operation and a team of 150 culinary professionals as the Executive Chef at the Straits Restaurants in San Francisco, California. Four years later, he joined the AAA Five-diamond Ritz-Carlton Rose Hall Golf & Spa Resort in Jamaica as the Executive Sous Chef. In 2007, Chef Amol accepted a position as the Executive Sous Chef with The Ritz-Carlton Huntington Hotel & Spa in Pasadena, California. By 2008, Chef Amol became the Executive Sous Chef and Acting Executive Chef at The Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Beijing, China.

Two year later, Chef Amol returned to the United States to become the Executive Chef of the JW Marriott, Camelback Inn in Scottsdale, Arizona, where he was responsible for overseeing eight different food and beverage outlets including the world-renowned AAA Four-Diamond BLT restaurant.

Chef Amol's delicacies have appeared in a special wedding layout in the leading fashion magazine Vogue. Amol was also recognized in Gourmet as the featured chef of the award-winning fine dining restaurant Baraabaru at the Four Seasons Resort Khuda Huraa, Maldives.
