Preciseness is the attitude, agility is the way. Chef Jonas strongly believed these are the two key concepts he learned and comprehended since he started his journey of being a chef. At the launch party, he proudly presented the traditional Swiss dish which is traditional veal dish with mushroom and cream and creatively cooked by a more modern style which alters the ingredients from beef liver and kidney to choice beef, making this more suitable for the contemporary dining concept.

This "Journey of Taste" combines the eastern dishes, which are familiar, with the western style. Meanwhile, the western dishes are more traditional delicacies. All of this magic is created by the superstar chef -- Jonas Juchli who was born in Switzerland and started his training at 16 years of age. He graduated from the Swiss culinary professional school. His painstaking learning experience in Europe has led him continue this culinary journey.

Almost all of Jonas's work experiences are closely related to Michelin - starred restaurants. In the highest standard working environment and quasi-military management style, Jonas carries himself with strict discipline. His outstanding performance and hard work also helped him to take over the position of deputy chef in a Michelin Star Restaurant -- WALDHOTEL FLETSCHHORN, in a Swiss hotel -- as well as a 4AA Rosette Award - winning restaurant in UK from 2008 to 2009. After that, he worked as a head chef in JOHANN, which is a Michelin Recommended Restaurant in Basel, Switzerland, from 2009 to 2013. During these experiences, Jonas realized that the cuisine was strict and meticulous. He managed completely different chef teams in a more flexible way. During the communication with frequent guests in the restaurant, Jonas has experienced a completely different cooking style which can be light or pleasant.

Before joining Hyatt Regency Beijing Wangjing, Jonas served as executive deputy chef at CONSTANCE EPHELIA in Seychelles, managing 7 restaurants and a 141 members' chef team in this resort. Jonas runs through his daily management work with a strict attitude, but by the way of joy and lightness in his communication with the guests and team, he has developed a unique cooking and management style. After arriving in Beijing, Jonas hopes to break down the gap between food and gastronomes in the all-day dining restaurant Market Cafe, Jonas appreciates the cooking techniques of food and discussing food opinions with chefs. His abundant work experience, skillful cooking techniques, international food concepts and curiosity of foreign cultures all make everyone look forward to his performance after joining Hyatt Regency Beijing Wangjing.
