Jacek Filipczyk

Executive Chef

My culinary adventure started early back in 1992 when I was learning to be a cook under the watchful eyes of best Cracovian chefs. I have been working in Sheraton Krakow Hotel for 12 years now and the thing that I enjoy the most is the constant opportunity to develop and to bring my creativity to a whole new levels. During my career at Sheraton Grand Krakow I have already been promoted 5 times and in 2016 I became the Executive Chef.

Asked about my favourite food I will say without a slightest hesitation – Polish! Traditional yet in a modern version, full of original combinations, enriched with flavours from other countries and cultures.

I carry my ideas into effect while preparing menus for The Olive restaurant, SomePlace Else bar and for my favourite place in Krakow - The Roof Top Terrace & Lounge Bar located on the fifth floor of our hotel.

During my work in Sheraton Grand Krakow I prepared meals for among others: President Wałęsa, President Kwaśniewski, Minister Sikorski, Polish actor Bogusław Linda and even a Princess of Thailand. Still I cook with the same passion for all our guests.
