Chef Edwin Mizuno returns to his roots
January 11, 2012 - Carla Tracy
Chefs really get around. It’s in their nature to move from one property to another to get the full scale of what’s out there in the culinary world. Sometimes, they even come full circle, returning to their roots.
Edwin Mizuno is one such chef. He has joined the Hawaii Prince Hotel Waikiki and Golf Club on Oahu as executive chef, returning to the hotel where he worked as a sous chef in the 1990s.
Mizuno is now overseeing all of the banquets, room service and restaurant venues such as Prince Court, Hakone, Bird of Paradise, Reef Lounge and Marina Front Cafe.
“In addition to working for Prince Resorts Hawaii, Mizuno’s 25 years of experience in the culinary field includes two years in Japan and positions at the Sheraton Kauai Resort, Mauna Lani Bay Hotel and Bungalows, Waikiki Parc and Hyatt Regency Waikiki,” according to the press release. “Most recently he was the chef de cuisine at the Trump International Hotel Waikiki Beach Walk.”
“We feel very fortunate to have Edwin return to our hotel and we are looking forward to sharing his innovative cuisine with our guests,” says Wade Gesteuyala, hotel manager at Hawaii Prince Hotel Waikiki and Golf Club.
“It’s great to be back at Prince which has always placed special emphasis on cuisine,” said Mizuno. “My goal is to build upon our tradition of superb dining and service in a comfortable atmosphere where both hotel guests and kama’aina will feel welcome.”
“Mizuno graduated from Kapiolani Community College in 1986 with an associate degree in culinary arts.”
“Located at the entrance to Waikiki, the Hawaii Prince Hotel Waikiki and Golf Club is appointed with all oceanfront accommodations and world-class service at one of Oahu’s most desirable and convenient locations.”
“Prince Resorts Hawaii, Inc. operates three hotels in Hawaii: Hawaii Prince Hotel Waikiki, Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel and Mauna Kea Beach Hotel. The company also operates three golf courses: Hawaii Prince Golf Club, Hapuna Golf Course and Mauna Kea Golf Course.”
