Chef Peter Gennaro of Cafe Amalfi in Myrtle Beach
Executive Chef Peter Genarro III brings a wealth of talent and culinary expertise to the Hilton Myrtle Beach Resort at Kingston Plantation where he oversees all aspects of food preparation and presentation.
His restaurant industry career started at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas where Gennaro earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management. Since then his resume reads like the natural progression of a corporate chef, starting at the Las Vegas Hilton in 1980 as a sous-chef and saucier, moving on to Ritz Carlton properties and advancing to assistant executive chef positions at Fairbanks Ranch in Del Mar, Calif., La Costa Resort & Spa in Carlsbad, Calif., and the Hotel Del Coronado in Coronado, Calif.
During his 25-year professional career in California, Chef Gennaro says he learned that simplicity is best, and that giving good chefs the ability to change menus as they see fit is the best method for creating a happy staff and delighted diners.
