Chef Guillaume Galliot Joins Caprice at Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong

Chef Guillaume Galliot, one of the leading faces of contemporary French gastronomy, is to join the team at Caprice, a Michelin 2-Star restaurant at the Four Seasons Hotel Kong Kong, as Chef de Cuisine effective, 24 April 2017.

Born in the town of Chambray-Les-Tours in the Loire Valley, Galliot found his passion, and wanderlust, quite young. Working under the twin brothers Chef Jacques and Laurent Pourcel at three Michelin star Jardin des Sens, Galliot expanded on his culinary school training, sharpening his skills while exploring the lighter touch of the Mediterranean. While there, he worked for a time in pastry, an experience that left him with an appreciation of the precision of the pastry arts, and a deeper understanding of how dessert unifies with a full dégustation menu.

After stints consulting in New York and Saint Barthélemy in the Caribbean, the urge to see the world pulled Galliot east until he landed in Singapore, becoming, at the age of 23, the youngest sous chef in the history of the iconic Raffles Hotel.

The chance to keep exploring the tastes and techniques of Chinese cuisine eventually took Galliot to the Raffles Hotel Beijing, a fortuitous posting as it allowed him to be part of the 2008 Olympic festivities.

In 2010 Galliot received the opportunity to bring his unique culinary vision to life. At The Tasting Room by Galliot in the City of Dreams, Macau, he drew on his personal culinary journey to craft a truly modern French fine dining experience. In the first year, the restaurant was recognised with one star in the Michelin Guide, an accolade he maintained for four consecutive years until achieving the coveted two Michelin star rating in 2016 and 2017.

"Caprice has been one of my favourite French restaurants in Hong Kong. I have gone there often since I moved to Macau more than six years ago. It is a privilege to join the Caprice team and have the opportunity to continue what Chef Vincent Thierry started and Chef Fabrice Vulin contributed during their tenures," said Chef Galliot. "The restaurant is beautiful, with a great open kitchen and an amazing harbour view from the dining room. Great produce, wine list and some of the best cheese selection in town. I'm really looking forward to joining the dynamic team at Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong."
