Massimiliano Blasone has been appointed the new executive chef of the contemporary Provençal restaurant, Cassis, on London’s Brompton road.
Prior to joining Cassis, Blasone worked as executive chef at Apsleys, a Heinz Beck Restaurant, at The Lanesborough Hotel. Prior to this he was executive chef at the Michelin-starred Il Ristorante in Montalcino, Tuscany. He has also worked at La Pergola in Rome and Residenz Heinz Winkler in Aschau - both of which had three Michelin stars when he was working for them.
Marlon Abela, chairman of the Marlon Abela Restaurant Corporation, which owns Cassis, said: “Massimiliano Blasone has gained an outstanding reputation as a passionate and uncompromising chef who demands the very best. He is very attuned to the way people like to dine in the 21st century and his ingredient-driven cuisine coupled with his fresh, expressive technique is well suited to the style of Cassis. His appointment presents us with a fantastic opportunity to take Cassis to the next level.”
