Andrea Joly


A decadent and satisfying meal is sure to be had when Sandals’ “Iron Chef” Andrea Joly, Former Executive Chef at Sandals Montego Bay,Sandals Grand Saint Lucia,Sandals Dunns River ,Beaches Boscobel and Sandals White House, puts his culinary skills to work.

Chef Joly’s pull to the culinary world came from his time spent in his grandmother’s kitchen. Chef Joly grew up in Aosta, Italy – a small town in northern Italy, bordering France. His first formal culinary training came at the Hotel School in Chatillon in Aosta Valley for three years but detoured thereafter as Joly followed with a one year stint in the Italian Army. Not to be deterred by this break however, he kept his culinary interests alive by persuading his comrades to allow him to prepare meals for the troops.

Following that, Joly seized the opportunity to travel extensively and experience different cultures and foods in Turkey, Greece, Malaysia, England , Guadeloupe and the USA. Through it all, his international exposure has allowed him to create delicious and inspiring dishes to please the palate of celebrities, political officials and governors of state.

His presentations are modern and artistic as he mixes colours, taste and textures that continue to warm the palates of those he serves.
