Hey Hawks Cay fans – we’ve got big news! Our very own Executive Chef William Ryan has been named “Chef of the Year” by the Florida Restaurant & Lodging Association. We’re so proud to see a member of our crew receive such an incredible honor. What makes this even more special is that he was selected by his peers for the culinary expertise he provides here at Hawks Cay.

Executive Chef Ryan has over 30 years of culinary experience in various parts of the world and is an all-around leader in the industry. He balances his role as Executive Chef here at the resort all while mentoring an average of 10 international culinary interns every year. Besides creating delicious dishes, Chef Ryan aims to make an impact on everyone he encounters in and outside of the kitchen. No one is more deserving of the Chef of the Year award than him!
