 Edwin “Zeus” Harmon is the Restaurant Chef at the Royal Sonesta Harbor Court Baltimore and is from Liberia, West Africa. His mother, Sylvia Verbena Harmon graduated from Le Cordon Bleu in Paris in 1959. In fact, says Zeus, “she was among the first black women to graduate from the school.” And throughout the ’70s, Sylvia put her culinary skills to work in the Liberian president’s executive mansion, cooking for many visiting dignitaries including former President Jimmy Carter.

Zeus, as he is more affectionately known, came to America in 1987 to attend college in West Virginia. He received his Bachelor of Science degree in industrial technology from West Virginia State College University in May 1993.

In 2000, he moved to Baltimore to follow his passion and his mother's footsteps in the culinary field. He enrolled at the L’ Academic de Cuisine in Gaithersburg, Maryland in June of 2000 and graduated the following year. Following graduation, Zeus started his externship at the Royal Sonesta Harbor Court Baltimore, and has been here ever since.  Over the years, Chef Zeus has worked his way up the culinary ladder at the hotel, and presently serves as the Restaurant Chef.
