EDMONTON, AB (February 6, 2019) – The Edmonton EXPO Centre is proud to announce that Arthur Chen has been appointed as the venue’s new Executive Pastry Chef.

Chef Arthur Chen is an award-winning Pastry Chef with more than 25 years of experience and multiple accolades and awards in the pastry kitchen. Arthur began working as a pastry trainee at the Sheraton Hotel, Shanghai in 1987. Influenced by French and American pastry chefs, Arthur quickly developed his talent and distinguished himself by creating masterful designs.  As a participant and coach of Culinary Team Canada over the last decade, he continues to push for excellence and give back to the culinary community with his time and mentorship.

“The addition of Chef Arthur Chen to our team at the Edmonton EXPO Centre will take our culinary offerings to the next level,” says Jiju Paul, Executive Chef for the Edmonton EXPO Centre. “Introducing an in-house pastry chef to our team means that we can be much more artistic and visionary with our ingredients, which allows us to meet and exceed our client’s expectations in new ways. We can’t wait for our guests to experience Arthur’s incredible creations.”

“I’m very excited to be part of the culinary team at the Edmonton EXPO Centre, and I’m ready to take on the challenges that come with serving high quality food to large numbers of guests,” says Arthur Chen. “I enjoy being creative with my work and trying out new ideas in the pastry kitchen. One of the best rewards in my job is seeing the smile on guests’ faces when they see a great dessert, and I look forward to bringing many more desserts worth smiling about to the Edmonton EXPO Centre.” 

Former Executive Pastry Chef at the Edmonton Convention Centre, Arthur’s extensive experience has brought him around the world. He has showcased artistic themes in his beautiful showpieces in China, the United States, Vancouver and most recently in Kelowna as the Executive Pastry Chef at the Delta Grand Okanagan Resort & Conference Centre.
