Pan Pacific London Appoints Internationally Renowned Executive Chef to its Bow of Executives
Pan Pacific London announced the appointment of Lorraine Sinclair as Executive Chef. Located in London’s new landmark tower, One Bishopsgate Plaza, this multi award-winning chef returns to her home country, following years honing her craft at Sheraton Saigon Hotel & Towers, where she was Director of Culinary Operations for four years.
On joining the hotel, Lorraine will be responsible for the entire food and chef operations. Widely recognised as one of the top female chefs in the world, Lorraine will lead the hotel brigade and will be putting her own stamp on restaurants and menus.
Lorraine Sinclair, Executive Chef at Pan Pacific London says: “I look forward to bringing the elegance of natural flavours respected in Asian cuisines to Pan Pacific London and growing our knowledge of respecting our environment through educating the team on sustainability.”
Her nearly thirty years’ experience in top kitchens in Europe, Asia and the Middle East, has seen Lorraine hold eight Executive Chef positions. She was selected as the first female Executive Chef in a number of different locations including Bahrain, Istanbul and Hong Kong, and most recently in Dubai, in her position at the Fairmont Hotel. While in Hong Kong, two restaurants under Sinclair’s direction were awarded Michelin Stars. She was nominated as a “Les Toques Blanches” Board Member and has published a charity cookbook. This is in addition to her receiving multiple accolades including the BBC Good Food award, Time Out’s Best Steak House and being placed third in Best Restaurants in 2013 by Esquire.
