Phnom Penh, Cambodia, November 1, 2023 / TOP25RESTAURANTS / The historic Raffles Hotel Le Royal is set to welcome celebrated French Chef Pascal Favre d’Anne, the recipient of two Michelin stars, for a series of exclusive meals in November.
Chef Pascal was awarded his first Michelin star in 2008 for Le Favre d’Anne restaurant in Angers in northwestern France and his second Michelin star in 2016 for another restaurant of the same name. His cuisine is inspired by his global travels, particularly in Asia, and highlights fresh, locally sourced ingredients prepared with distinctive French cooking techniques.
At Raffles Hotel Le Royal, Chef Pascal will serve exclusive 5-course set dinners on Nov. 16, 17 and 18, priced at $88++, and special 3-course set lunches on Nov. 17 and 18, priced at $42++. All meals will be served at Restaurant Le Royal and include an optional wine pairing. Guests can also discover the Louis XIII Cognac Experience, which is served tableside from a decanter.
Some highlights from Chef Pascal’s sumptuous set menus at Raffles Hotel Le Royal include scallops with radish, herring roe, matcha tea and truffle oil; steamed Mekong River lobster with Cointreau orange liqueur and shell bisque; seared sea bass with carrot and lemon confit; and crusted veal filet with ceps and celery ravioli; among others.
“Chef Pascal’s two Michelin stars speak for themselves, underscoring his extraordinary culinary talents, and we are delighted to welcome him to Restaurant Le Royal as we continue to redefine high-end gastronomy in Cambodia,” Raffles Hotel Le Royal General Manager Dennis de Groot said.
More recently, Chef Pascal has been overseeing the opening of the new Halles Gourmandes d’Angers in northwestern France, where he has a Cuisine du Marche concept store. He is also the culinary ambassador for Cointreau, the world-famous orange liqueur produced in Angers, and he is involved in a highly respected culinary school, the Angers Campus Gastronomic.
Chef Pascal’s fine-dining experiences at Raffles Hotel Le Royal will mark the third culinary event at the hotel this year featuring Michelin-starred chefs. In March, the hotel welcomed French Chef Patrice Hardy of the two-Michelin-starred Le Palme d’Or at Hotel Martinez in Cannes and the one-Michelin-starred La Brettonnière in Boulogne-Billancourt. And in June, two-Michelin-star Chef Thierry Drapeau and Vietnam Iron Chef winner Chef Sakal Phoeung prepared a series of special “four-hands” dining experiences at Restaurant Le Royal.
Seating for Chef Pascal’s meals at Restaurant Le Royal is limited and advanced reservations are required. For inquiries and reservations, please contact Raffles Hotel Le Royal at Tel: 023 981 888
