Caravelle Saigon is, once again, recognising talent from within this month with Darren Watson moving into the role of Executive Chef for the famed hotel in the heart of Saigon. Darren’s career has taken him around the world, leading him to his previous role as Executive Sous Chef at Caravelle Saigon in early 2010.

Working at Fenix and Richard Pratt’s private mansion before moving to Aria in Sydney, Watson has now become a sought-after name in the culinary world.
