Susanto Bhattacharya, who started his culinary career in a small town in India, is the new executive chef at the Ritz Carlton Bacara.

With skills acquired in Europe, Asia, North America, and Africa, including the Caribbean, he will oversee the oceanside hostelry’s six culinary venues, including the Angel Oak, housing the tony resort’s 12,000-bottle wine collection.

“I am passionate about providing a symphony of flavors collected on multiple trips to exotic locations around the world,” says Bhattacharya, who has worked with three celebrated Michelin chefs, including Raymond Blanc, whose eatery, Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons, I had the pleasure of dining at with Virgin tycoon Sir Richard Branson, when he was a partner in the Oxfordshire restaurant.
