Fraser Allan appointed Executive Chef of Galvin's Brasserie and Pompadour


Chris and Jeff Galvin have announced the appointment of new executive chef Fraser Allan. Fraser began his role earlier this month, working with Chris and Jeff in London to develop new dishes, and this week begins overseeing the kitchens of Galvin Brasserie de Luxe and The Pompadour by Galvin, both within the 5-star Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh - The Caledonian.

Fraser previously held the role of head chef at Galvin Brasserie de Luxe, from its opening in 2012 until 2014 when he left to pursue another role. During his time at the Brasserie, Fraser led the team to win a Michelin Bib Gourmand in the 2013/14 guide, the only new award issued by Michelin in Scotland that year. He was also instrumental in the Brasserie being awarded Restaurant of the Year at the Scottish Hotel Awards 2014.

Both dining outlets were formed by Michelin-starred chef brothers Chris and Jeff Galvin as part of the hotel's £24m refurbishment in 2012.
Fraser's appointment follows the departure of former executive chef Craig Sandle at the start of the year.
Bite reviewed Fraser Allen's food back in May 2013 and identified Fraser Allen as 'one to watch'.
