VANCOUVER — Fairmont Pacific Rim has added Kate Seigel to its culinary team as its new executive pastry chef. Seigel will oversee the entire pastry program for the hotel’s two restaurants, banquets and in-room dining.
Born and raised in Toronto, Siegel started her culinary career in restaurants, prior to joining Four Seasons Hotel Toronto’s pastry team in 2004. Siegel then held progressive culinary positions at the Four Seasons Whistler, followed by the Metropolitan Hotel in downtown Vancouver.
In 2012, Siegel returned to Toronto where she accepted the role of executive pastry chef at the Shangri-La Hotel Toronto with then executive chef Damon Campbell, who is now executive chef at Fairmont Pacific Rim.
“We’re thrilled to have Kate join the team and I am personally so excited for us to work together again,” says Campbell. “Kate’s commitment and creativity always stood out to me, and I know her experience as an executive pastry chef, as well as a chocolatier, will elevate our pastry program and provide an exceptional experience for those who dine and stay with us.”
