Chef Pascal Aussignac

Chef Pascal Aussignac is from Toulouse in the South West of France, where duck, fine charcuterie, cassoulet, good wines, and Armagnac are the order of the day. At fourteen years old, he enlisted in a cooking school in Bordeaux. His mentor, Gerard Vie, an esteemed chef at Les Trois Marches, in Versailles, persuaded Pascal’s parents to let him leave school at seventeen to pursue this a culinary profession. He learned under French master Chefs like Gerard Vie, Alain Dutournier, and Guy Savoy. His passion for food and, attentiveness to detail has been fascinating foodies and critics in London since 1998. When Chef Pascal relocated to the UK, he brought the spirit of Gascony with him. He considers a good recipe, will not include more than three flavors’ and views the presentation as an essential representative for keeping diners enraptured. Fittingly his compilation of culinary delights is full of creatively presented dishes, with edible flower recipes like Courgette flowers with goat’s cheese and violet jelly and his signature Primavera tulips. Duck is another special ingredient for Pascal, as seen in his Foie gras bon-bon recipe and the classic French dish Duck pot-au-feu.

In 2013 Pascal was named ‘Restaurant Chef of the Year’ at the Craft Guild of Chef Awards. Now, Pascal Aussignac’s name has become synonymous with “la cuisine de Gascogne.” With a Michelin star and a host of French restaurants in his stable, Aussignac’s understanding and reworking of Gascony’s fare are unsurpassed.

Pascal cooks at Club Gascon every day and, in addition to his role as Executive Chef, looks after the floral arrangements across all his award-winning restaurants situated in London: Le Bar, Comptoir Gascon, Cigalon, and Baranis.
