Orlando World Center Marriott has named Kyle Anderson as chef de cuisine for its farm-to-table restaurant Siro: Urban Italian Kitchen. The position had previously been held by Alexia Gawlak, who left to join her husband, Rhys, at Swine & Sons Provisions in Winter Park.
Anderson is a graduate of the University of Central Florida and the Culinary Institute of America. Among the positions he has held is the title of sous chef under Kenneth Juran at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress.
Anderson is expected to bring his take on classic Italian dishes to the well-received restaurant.
“We’re extremely excited about the unique blend of creativity and the level of passion for Italian cuisine that chef Kyle Anderson brings to Orlando World Center Marriott,” Doug Ridge, general manager of Orlando World Center Marriott, said in a statement. “His experience and ability to master new techniques in the kitchen exemplifies what an incredible asset he is to the team.”
