"Good products and taste above all".
Born in Charente-Maritime in a small oyster-farming port, the son of a butcher, Fabien was immersed in the world of gastronomy from an early age.
After completing his apprenticeship at a hotel school, he moved to Paris where he had the chance to work in some of the great Parisian restaurants with Guy Savoy and Christian Le Squer at the Pavillon Ledoyen, to name but a few.
Fabien then set off for the south of France. These experiences with Parisian and regional caterers and in seminar venues only increased his passion for good food.
In 2008, he and Angélique set up L'Eveil des papilles to share their love of good food and produce.
In 2010, he won 1st place in the Vaudieu competition, and in 2014 and 2016, he finished 3rd best French caterer in the French selection of the International Cup Catering.
