After years of working with other Michelin-starred chefs, Chef Fabien opened his own restaurant, Octopus, in the heart of Beziers in France in January 2005. The restaurant is now known as one of the best in the South of France and has received excellent reviews from respected media. In 2004, Chef Fabien was honored with the prestigious, coveted title “Un des Meilleur Ouvrier de France”, or “One of Best Craftsmen in France”, in the culinary category by the French Ministry of Labor. Held every four years, these awards are highly regarded by the people of France and indeed professionals globally. To add to his achievements, Octopus was awarded its first Michelin star in 2008.
Chef Fabien offers a modern French cuisine revisited and refined with Mediterranean flavours. He expresses his personality in the kitchen through a love of simplicity and demonstrates his innovative talent to satisfy all the senses. Some of his award-winning dishes include gravalax-style marinated salmon served with cucumber and cauliflower marshmallow and caviar; sautéed wagyu beef with tarragon sauce and cheminées-style potato and an extraordinary line of luscious gourmet desserts such as simmered fresh raspberry in warm rhubarb juice with Thai rice ice cream.
