Born in the north of Burgundy, Fabien Pairon began working in the food business at the age of 15. He initially trained as a chef and worked in France and abroad mainly in gastronomic restaurants and international catering service companies.
He set up his own catering and reception organization business in his home region and ran it for 6 years.
Just as the products must be magnificent, Fabien gives also a great importance to the excellence of the utensils used for his preparations. It is therefore quite natural that he has been cooperating with De Buyer France for many years.
His title of "Meilleur Ouvrier de France" obtained in 2011 led him to teach at EHL (Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne), giving thus a new impulse to his career.
