December 12, 2017 1:12pm
December 12, 2017 – Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa is pleased to introduce Chef James Morin as its new Executive Chef, overseeing and managing all aspects of the culinary experience enjoyed at the 500-room property. Morin replaces his colleague Chef Barrett, who recently departed Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa to take a position at Hyatt Regency Orlando.
Morin has worked with Hyatt Corporation for more than 15 years, where he began his career at Hyatt Regency Calgary in Canada. His dedication, talent and enthusiasm contributed to his rapid advancement and afforded him the opportunity to work with several renowned Canadian Chefs. These experiences culminated in him becoming the Chef de Cuisine/Banquet Chef in Calgary before moving south to become the Executive Sous Chef at Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort and Spa, and Grand Hyatt Tampa. Most recently, he served as the Executive Chef at Hyatt Regency Savannah where he conceptualized the newest addition, Moss + Oak.
Chef Morin’s culinary philosophy centers on building relationships and embracing the local food community and local ingredients. “By embedding yourself in the local cuisine, you gain an incredible knowledge of the culture and history of a particular region, allowing your culinary creations to be authentic yet fresh,” says Chef Morin. “I look forward to engaging with the San Antonio food community and creating that fresh, authentic, Texas culinary experience for which Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa is known.”
