Fraser Allan is returning to the Caledonian to oversee the kitchens of Galvin Brasserie de Luxe and the Pompadour by Galvin at the Waldorf Astoria’s flagship hotel in Edinburgh. 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 restaurants were formed by Michelin-starred chef brothers Chris and Jeff Galvin as part of the hotel’s £24 million refurbishment in 2012.
