Our Team

Our skilled Chefs, cooks and sommeliers practice their art with the utmost respect for the environment and good living. Through their authenticity, passion and commitment, our Relais & Châteaux family invites you on a memorable Delicious Journey.

Adriano Venturini

Executive Chef & Culinary Director

“I believe that as people become more aware of respecting the planet, sustainability is becoming the new luxury that guests are excited to see and experience during their stay.”

 

Recently appointed as Executive Chef & Culinary Director, Adriano Venturini has a strong background in luxury establishments including Michelin starred restaurants in the United Kingdom and Italy and a variety of high-end hotel restaurants, the Italian gourmet brings to Eden Roc Cap Cana a wealth of experience and passion – especially around sustainability.

Combining creativity, experience, passion and knowledge, the new Culinary Director plans to introduce a new open kitchen so guests can see how food is made, and this open kitchen policy will extend beyond the literal, as Venturini aims for this concept to apply to open communication within the kitchen, too. He aims to foster a positive environment and policies that look after his staff’s mental health and well-being.

The Chef also focuses on bringing in new modern food techniques which put presentation at the forefront.

Alberto García Pérez

Sous Chef

“When I plan a plate I put in all my senses, taste, touch, smell, play with colors and especially I focus on the environment. The kitchen is an act of love where I can share my professional and personal experience with the guests”.

 

Alberto Garcia was born in Cadiz, Spain but grew up in Sanlucar de Barrameda. He was always linked to the sea world and gastronomy. Had his first contact with a professional kitchen at 22 years old with the hand of Angel Leon, “Chef of the sea” in the ‘Aponiente’ restaurant. After winning the first Michelin star in this restaurant he decided to travel and expand his vision going through different restaurants in Spain. He worked with Martin Berasategui’s restaurant in San Sebastian and later in Barcelona.

Then he travels to France where he worked as Sous Chef at the restaurant ‘La Loge’ and later at ‘L’Atelier’ de Jean Luc Rabanel with two Michelin stars in Arles.

Chef Alberto Garcia returns to Spain to take over the kitchen of ‘Gran Hotel Nagari’ in Vigo. In early 2016 he joined the team of Eden Roc at Cap Cana as Sous Chef of Mediterraneo Restaurant to show his versatility mixing the Dominican culture with the Mediterranean cuisine.

Juan Encarnación

Sous Chef

“The key is to strive every single day of your life to be a better person and to do things with love and passion. I can assure it will not be in vain because you know that you always did the best you could. You may be surprised to find that this brings your goals and dreams faster than you ever thought possible” 

Juan Encarnación was born in Samaná, located on the north coast of the Dominican Republic. He’s love for food began at a very young age when he decided to work with his grandfather on a cargo ship. They both and the crew went through many different difficulties since they had no one to cook for them during their journey. Juan would always volunteer to cook for everyone and always seemed to enjoy it. That was the exact moment he decided to do his best to enter the world of Culinary Arts. Since then, he has worked for 10 years inside the private estate of Cap Cana where he’s had the privilege to acquire tremendous knowledge working with many different personalities of the cuisine area. He worked in 4 different restaurants where he obtained all his professional experience.

His greatest accomplishment today is working for Eden Roc at Cap Cana where he has 6 years achieving great results with effort and dedication. His goal is to make of La Palapa the best Sea Food Restaurant in the whole area of Punta Cana and the Caribbean, to attract locals and other guests to the restaurant and offer them the best culinary experience and the highest standard of service.

Juan Pablo Gogin

Sous Chef BLUE Grill + Bar

“My dishes are the reflection of my culture and the passion for what I do”.

“My dishes are the reflection of my culture and the passion for what I do”.

Chef Juan Pablo Gogin is of Peruvian nationality with Japanese ancestry, raised and educated under the culture of these 2 countries.
He started in the culinary world thanks to the teachings of his mother and grandfather from an early age, becoming interested in the cuisine of both Japanese and Peruvian cultures. It is when in March of 2011 an important chain of restaurants of Peruvian-Japanese fusion food, EDO SUSHI BAR, decided to hire Juan Pablo for one of its restaurants in Lima, where he worked as itamae (sushi chef), and learned and acquired all the techniques that encompass both Peruvian cuisine and especially Japanese cuisine.

In May of 2017, Juan Pablo joined the Eden Roc Cap Cana team as Sous Chef at the Blue Grill & Bar restaurant, where he is applying all the knowledge acquired throughout the years, respecting the cultural roots of Peruvian and Japanese gastronomy.
