Paul Burgalières


In this episode, Justine interviews Paul Burgalières as he talks about his promotion and role as Executive Chef at L’Enclume, his time at Geranium and what advice he would give to chefs starting in the industry.

Born in Limoges in west France, Paul started his culinary journey training at Lycée Hôtelier de La Rochelle. After graduating, Paul worked with Michel Trama in Puymirol for a year and did a season with Michel Rochedy in Courchevel. In 2011, Paul made the move to London to work as a Chef de Partie at L’Atelier Robuchon before landing a job at three Michelin star Geranium in Copenhagen (number one in The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2022) where he worked his way up from a Chef de Partie to Assistant Head Chef in just two years. It was there, under Rasmus Kofoed, that Paul learnt to appreciate the role of nature in gastronomy.

In 2017, his wife suggested making the move back to the UK. Having previously worked in London, Paul wanted to settle outside of the capital so when the position of Head Chef at L’Enclume opened up, he jumped at it. Now as Executive Chef, alongside Simon Rogan, Paul has been instrumental in the development of L’Enclume over the last six years and played a key role in the third Michelin star win in February 2022.
