"We intend to surprise your palate, and demonstrate that every bite of healthy food can also taste delicious."

Hilton Head Health (H3), America’s leading health and wellness resort, today announced the hiring of renowned Executive Chef Hicham Elmadi. Born and raised in Casablanca, Morocco, Chef Hicham discovered his love for cooking as a young boy in his mother’s kitchen. After graduating from culinary school in 1998, he continued to develop his skills in fine restaurants around the world. Fluent in five languages, Chef Hicham eventually was approached by prominent Paris-based restaurant group Les Freres Blanc to make a move to the United States.

Chef Hicham initially served as Chef de Cuisine at Au Pied de Cochon, an offshoot of the famed Parisian restaurant located within Atlanta’s posh InterContinental Hotel. He was subsequently named Executive Chef at Ciao Bella, Atlanta’s oldest and finest Italian restaurant.

Chef Hicham’s unique expertise and skills promise to bring a new dimension to H3’s innovative cuisine. His culinary team has high aspirations for the ever-evolving menu at H3. “I’m thrilled,” comments Chef Hicham, “to introduce our guests to new and exciting dishes that are both good and good for you.”

Traditionally, healthy cuisine has all too often been bland and boring – sacrificing taste in the name of nourishment. H3’s continuing mission is to infuse strong flavors into every dish, and to create truly memorable meals that would be the envy of any fine restaurant. “We intend to surprise your palate, and demonstrate that every bite of healthy food can also taste delicious,” says Chef Hicham.
