Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North welcomes Executive Chef Chuck Kazmer, a 25-year veteran of Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts, arriving most recently from the brand’s sister property in Amman, Jordan. Kazmer assumes responsibility for the Scottsdale property’s three main restaurants – Talavera, Proof, an American Canteen, and Saguaro Blossom poolside grill – in addition to Onyx Bar & Lounge and all food and beverage service throughout the conference and banquet facilities.
“Chef Kazmer’s extensive experience and depth of knowledge – both of the culinary operation and of Four Seasons – will serve him well in his new role in Scottsdale,” says General Manager Marc Bromley. “We look forward to introducing him to the destination’s burgeoning dining scene, and are excited by his passion for locally sourced, regionally inspired cuisine.”
Kazmer began his culinary journey at Four Seasons Hotel Austin as a culinary apprentice. Following Austin, he headed to Four Seasons Hotel Boston, working in fine dining restaurant Aujourdhui and the iconic Bristol Lounge. He was promoted to Sous Chef during his time in Boston, before making his way back to Texas to Four Seasons Resort and Club Las Colinas. Kazmer worked in all areas of the culinary operation, eventually becoming Senior Banquet Chef. Appointments in Houston and Chicago followed, working in the capacity of Executive Sous Chef at both properties.
“I prefer to cook simply and naturally. If you are fortunate enough to gather the best ingredients, you should not have to dress up a dish to make it tasty,” says Kazmer. “Food should be fun and fresh, not heavy and boring.”
Nestled in the cooling foothills of Pinnacle Peak, Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North offers a truly handcrafted resort experience – delivering impeccable, highly personalized, Five-Diamond service amid the rugged beauty of the lush Sonoran Desert. From the art on the walls and the cuisine in the restaurants to Native American-inspired spa treatments and adobe-style architecture, the Resort embodies a true “sense of place” in the heart of the Arizona Sonoran Desert.
