Four Seasons Hotel Guangzhou announces Giancarlo Di Francesco as new executive chef

Four Seasons Hotel Guangzhou recently appointed Giancarlo Di Francesco as Executive Chef. Giancarlo was born in Italy and with the abundant Asian culinary experience, Chef Giancarlo knows well in fusion of authentic Italian culinary artistry and Asian cuisine culture.


Born and raised not far from the Adriatic coast of Italy in a region crowded with vineyards and olive groves, Giancarlo pursued a culinary career because he grew up watching his mother cook and knew he always wanted to travel. He started his career in Italy working for independent restaurants until he had the opportunity to do the opening of the restaurant at Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo in 1992. Then left to pursue other opportunities and hone his Asian cooking skills before returning to the company.

In 2004, Giancarlo returned to Four Seasons at Tokyo's Chinzan-So as Executive Sous Chef. A few years later he took on the massive task of opening the first Four Seasons Hotel in India-Four Seasons Hotel Mumbai as their Executive Chef. In 2010, he started to explore the Middle East and assumed the role of Executive Chef at Four Seasons Hotel Doha and since 2015 has been in Abu Dhabi where he did the successful opening of that beautiful property in the United Arab Emirates.

“It is my honour to join Four Seasons Hotel Guangzhou,” said Giancarlo. “Guangzhou is famous for its cuisine, and I always believe that the world may be changing but good food is not. I wish that I can bring local gourmets a delightful dining experience.”
