Fabrice Lasnon has taken up the position as the new Executive Chef of Pan Pacific London.

Fabrice has taken up the new role after previously holding the position of Executive Chef at The Savoy, London, bringing a wealth of experience having worked internationally and will be putting his own stamp on the restaurants and menus.

Commenting on appointment, Fabrice said: “I am thrilled to be joining the Pan Pacific London team. I believe in preserving the original identity of a cuisine by fusing traditions, local produce and local know-how with new ideas, textures and a different approach.”

He added: “I also believe that none of that is possible without a team who have been developed to their best and are committed to bring it together with an open mind.”

Hailing from France, Fabrice’s culinary journey has taken him to New Orléans, London, Madeira, Cairo and Dubai, where he had his first opening experience in One and Only Royal Mirage and Arabian Court.

From 2003 to 2006 he directed the cuisine of the prominent Ciragan Palace in Istanbul, before joining the legendary hotel Adlon Kempinski, Berlin in 2007, the only time the hotel had a French Executive Chef in a century.

Fabrice moved to Marrakech to re-launch La Mamounia followed by being appointed as Executive Chef at Mandarin Oriental Bodrum, Turkey. In 2018, having headed up the kitchen at The Murray in Hong Kong, Lasnon returned to London for the first time in over twenty years to take up a high-profile role as Executive Chef at The Savoy.
