Daniel Ferreira

Daniel Ferreira joins The St. Regis Dubai as Chef de Cuisine at J&G Steakhouse. Daniel brings to his role a wealth of eclectic experience in some of the world’s finest restaurants, as well as a desire to push the boundaries of traditional cuisine.
Prior to his current position at J&G Steakhouse, Daniel worked as Chef de Cuisine at the beautiful Turquoiz Restaurant at the St. Regis, Saadiyat Island in Abu Dhabi for two years. He delighted guests with his delivery of clean seafood using high quality local produce, and it was under his expert steer that Turquoiz was nominated for many awards, and became one of Abu Dhabi’s most sought after culinary destinations.
Daniel grew up in Johannesburg and discovered his love for cooking at a young age. On vacation in Spain with his father when he was 17, Daniel was exposed to an explosion of flavours, techniques and approaches to food. It was this experience, Daniel believes that sowed the seed for Daniel to take his culinary passion to new heights, and move abroad.
When he was just eighteen, Daniel began his first culinary appointment under the tutelage of esteemed restaurateur, Wolfgang Wollauz at The Courier Restaurant in Parkview, Johannesburg. Voted one of South Africa’s top restaurants, it was here that he learnt the foundations of the hospitality industry and found his passion for fine cuisine.
In 2005, Daniel made the pivotal move to London where he immersed himself in the world of British fine dining. He began his culinary journey as Chef De Partie at Delfina Restaurant in London Bridge, before moving to the trendy Whitechapel Dining Room, where he was Sous Chef for two years. During his eight-year period in London, Daniel felt privileged to learn from world-renowned and Michelin chefs such as Maria Elia, Claire Smyth and Tom Aikens, and worked in some of London’s most prestigious restaurants including Tom Aiken’s flagship restaurant in Mayfair and the Chelsea Arts Club.
J&G Steakhouse is one of the signature specialty restaurants at The St. Regis Dubai. Located on the first floor of the hotel, the steakhouse offers a sophisticated collection of American classics served with a modern flair.
