)-- Rade Malobabic, general manager of the hotel, has stated: ‘We are absolutely pleased to greet Kristijan Konjevic, a Croatian born chef with enormous international experience, to our team. He brings to the hotel not only his experience of 15 years in the hospitality industry, but also knowledge about different food concepts and international cuisine.’
Chef Konjevic’s interest in food began more than 15 years ago, in his teenage years, when he realized that his future lies in cooking, and he has since been in love with cooking, which is not only his job, but also a life passion. After completing his culinary education, he initially worked in several renowned Croatian hotels, which led him to a position of assistant food and beverage manager at the world known cruise company, the Celebrity Cruises. He stayed ‘on board’ for two years, learning different skills and concepts in the food and beverage department, enabling him to obtain his next position at the Hotel de la Montagne in Montreal. He spent two years there, afterwards moving to his next position as a Sous Chef at the Novotel Montreal in Quebec, and later on to Delta Centre Ville, a 711-room hotel with 24 meetings rooms and numerous restaurants. Prior to his arrival to the Dubrovnik Palace Hotel, Chef Konjevic obtained a position of Executive Sous Chef at the Delta Centre Ville, overseeing complete kitchen operations as well as supervising kitchen staff, ensuring that the best quality was delivered.
At the Dubrovnik Palace, Chef Konjevic will be responsible for entire food operations including four restaurants, two bars, a night club, as well as numerous banquet and event operations at different hotel venues.
