Nine on the Line: Emily Dillport from the Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain

Florida native Emily Dillport began her career with the Ritz-Carlton 12 years ago. Before moving to Arizona, she worked for their properties at Orlando, Palm Beach, Aruba, St. Thomas and New Orleans.

In 2016, Dillport took on the role of executive sous chef at the Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain, Southern Arizona’s only Forbes Five Star and AAA Five Diamond hotel. On April 9, 2019, she became executive chef. Now, she leads the teams behind CORE Kitchen & Wine Bar, Ignite, Cayton’s Burger Bistro, Turquesa Latin Grill, TO|GO, in-room dining, and resort banquets.

“I would like to continue introducing our guests to what can be foraged locally , and to different ways to enjoy these delicacies,” Dillport said in a press release. “From local pistachios to Cholla buds, I think Arizona has so much to offer that many people aren’t aware of… and there is a magic about this area that is unexplainable.”
