Chef Craig Dryhurst

Chef Craig Dryhurst, Executive Chef at Four Seasons Resort Maui, has spent his entire adult life working in 5-star kitchens in London, France, the East Coast, and Vancouver before landing in Maui. Joining Four Seasons Resort Maui's award-winning culinary team in 2014, Chef Dryhurst brings his innovative style to the Resort's two restaurants, DUO and Ferraro's Bar e Ristorante.

Healthy cuisine is an important focus at Four Seasons Resort Maui and this is best illustrated by the collaboration of Dr. Emerson and Chef Dryhurst with their creation of  The Wellness Menus which support the comprehensive wellness programs offered at the resort. Chef Craig will be instrumental with the delicious, healthy, 5-star meals served during Dr. Emerson's Private Immersion Events.

Dr. Emerson’s immersion retreat was a life-changer for me. In addition to spending quality time in the lap of luxury of the Four Seasons in Maui, I learned so many strategies and tips toward healthy living and living consciously with wellness as the ultimate objective. Getting insights into the medical science and learning the “HOW TOs” from the practical realities of shopping, cooking and exercise made a world of difference. My doctor was surprised at how good I looked after losing more than 15 pounds. But most importantly, all the metrics from my last blood work revealed that everything I learned from Dr. Emerson’s immersion program was working, especially as I am able to continue on this new lifestyle toward a healthier and happier me!

What a life changing experience I had at the Ultimate Health and Wellness Immersion. I feel the knowledge that was given to me has put me on a path of renewal and recovery. After years of not knowing how to turn my health around I feel that I have been given the tools to change my health. You and your staff made the information easy, fun, and hands on. It was an amazing experience to be a part of and I do feel it was a gift of a lifetime.
