Meet Executive Chef Khellil

Known for his calm and confident approach to running his kitchen, Executive Chef Abderezak Khellil has been with the Deer Path Inn since 1999.

Originally trained as a chef in southern Italy, Chef Khellil has always believed it is important to keep learning, traveling and exploring new ways to improve upon his techniques. When it comes to cooking, his philosophy is to do simple foods really well. He believes strongly that everything he serves should be something he would want to eat himself. You can rest assured that he will always keep the Deer Path Inn’s classic favourites like the Chicken Potpie, Langoustine Bisque and Fish and Chips on the menu. At the same time, he is always working on new ways to make them even better.

Over the years, his team has stayed with him, which is a sign of the professionalism and atmosphere he creates for both his team and guests.

Speaking of guests, they are one of the chef’s continual sources of inspiration. During his time at the Inn, he has formed friendships with more than a few returning guests. He knows that many have traveled the world over and share his passion for maintaining a superior level of quality.
