Joseph Procack has been appointed executive chef of Voco St David's in Cardiff.
The Welsh native will be responsible for leading the culinary team at the hotel's newly renovated bar and restaurant Tir a Môr.
Procack has said he will focus on serving seasonal dishes sourced from local producers.
He has over 30 years' experience in the industry, having most recently held the position of head chef at the Old Custom House in Penarth.
Commenting on his appointment, he said: "I'm really excited to join, and lead, the culinary team at the iconic Voco St David's, Cardiff. The Welsh capital has a vibrant food scene, and Tir a Môr has become a real part of it, thanks to significant investment.
"It's a go-to foodie hot spot in the city, and I'm looking forward to developing a memorable and exciting dining experience for guests to enjoy – something which will really put us on the wider UK food map."
It comes after the appointment of Konstantin Grimm to general manager of the hotel and spa, which was announced last month.
