New Executive Chef Ushers in an Era of Good Taste Among Sydney Harbour Restaurants

Hemant Dadlani Brings His Unique Recipe for Excellence to the Sydney Harbour Marriott Hotel at Circular Quay

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/17/14 -- Sydney may be known for many things (think harbours, opera houses and beaches), but that list is about to get one line longer. Thanks to the arrival of Executive Chef Hemant Dadlani, the restaurants at Sydney Harbour Marriott Hotel at Circular Quay are poised to shine on Australia's culinary map. Not only does Dadlani bring more than a decade of diverse restaurant experience to the hotel, but his strategic thinking and culinary passion make him a powerful force in the kitchen. And that bodes well both for this hotel on Sydney's famous Pitt Street and for its hungry visitors.

Offering guests three distinctive dining options -- including one of the top restaurants in Sydney -- the hotel provides an option for every palate, whether it's cocktails in Macquarie Lounge, pub fare in the 162-year-old Customs House Bar or a spectacular seafood buffet in the elegant Icons Brasserie.

Fortunately for foodies, Dadlani's background complements the hotel's dynamic approach to food. Introduced to cooking by his mother in India, Dadlani initially pursued a degree in Hotel Management and Catering Technology. But after a tutorial by a South Indian Master Chef, Dadlani discovered his true calling in the kitchen and began a distinguished career that took him to properties around the world. In addition to working as the Executive Chef at Pangkor Laut Resort in Malaysia, Dadlani has re-conceptualised restaurants at Rosewood Little Dix Bay, opened the Apsara restaurant at Jade Mountain & Anse Chastanet Resorts in St. Lucia and turned around a failing Indian restaurant at Curacao's Hotel Kura Hulanda.

The accolades have followed accordingly. Bon Appetit readers, for example, might recognise Dadlani from its feature on the cooperative, small-scale farming project he helmed in the British Virgin Islands. Others might remember when he was featured in various magazines and books, or when he served as a guest chef at Conde Nast in New York.

Or, for the lucky few, perhaps Dadlani's accomplishments and prowess remain as-yet unknown, waiting to be discovered within this hotel's Sydney Harbour restaurants. That element of surprise, whether it arrives with the Tasmanian salmon steak at Icons, during high tea at Macquarie Lounge or over Moroccan-spiced lamb pizza at Customs House Bar, will only enhance the restaurant experience. After all, the property may attract visitors because of its location among hotels near the famous Sydney Opera House. But its restaurants, with Dadlani now at their helm, will be the reason people want to stay.

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues.

The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand.

Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text...
Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically.

The web app is agile. The REST API is agile. The testing and planning are agile. But alas, data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes that force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organ...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
