The Italian Job

Alessandro ‘Alex’ Molini Takes Charge at Prego – Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali


The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali has welcomed Italian Chef de Cuisine, Alessandro “Alex” Molini to its culinary team. Alex comes directly from Four Seasons Resort Nevis in the West Indies where he was instrumental in re-establishing their Italian restaurant following a tropical cyclone.

Passionate about food from an early age, Chef Alex graduated with a culinary certificate from Domodossola near his hometown of Montecrestese, Italy. After embarking on his chosen career, he later completed his education with a college degree in general hospitality studies.

Chef Alex enjoyed a rapid rise through the culinary ranks during his time at the world famous Bulgari Hotel Milan. Bidding Milano farewell, he then accepted a succession of roles that saw him cooking in exotic destinations such as Tanzania and Greece.

Upon returning to his native Italy, Chef Alex has worked as an instructor for the Formont Culinary High School in Villadossola. There he created a curriculum based on kitchen techniques for baking and pizza making.

His main role at the school was to train students with disabilities and behavioral problems for eventual job placements.

Chef Alex assignment in Bali finds him in charge of Prego, a Westin concept Italian restaurant.

Since his arrival, Chef Alex has been quick to familiarize himself with the availability of local ingredients and has immediately put his traditional bread making skills to the test. He has also overseen the introduction of an outdoor barbecue to enhance the extensive array of delicacies served at Sunday’s Prego Family Brunch.

In his spare time Chef Alex is an enthusiastic golfer with a love for travel and motorbikes.

“Essentially, we are still in the process of positioning Prego as an upbeat restaurant that serves great food and complements Bali’s relaxed way of life. Therefore, we are delighted to have Chef Alex on board. His energy and expertise in the kitchen is just what we need to take Prego to the next level,” said Bipan Kapur, managing director of The Westin Resort Nusa Dua, Bali.
