48 Hours With Four Seasons Executive Chef, Cyrille Pannier


Watch this episode on

On this episode of Food as a Lifestyle, we glimpse into the homelife of esteemed Four Seasons Executive Chef, Cyrille Pannier. Part love story, part biopic, and all food porn, this episode illustrates Chef Pannier’s passion both in and out of the kitchen.

We begin with the story of Cyrille and his wife, Callie. Cyrille devised an intricate plan to win Callie over back when they were both working at the Four Seasons. Callie remembers seeing “this white chef’s hat popping into the sales office.” Then, weeks later she was invited to a dinner party... and, well, the rest is history. Today, the two are married and live in Los Angeles with their young daughter, Eloise.

Eloise is a bright, energetic soul who takes after her father in the kitchen. Self-proclaimed “princess chef,” Eloise is the master of tart decorating. You can watch her traipse through the farmer’s market with her parents, smelling the fresh fruits and vegetables to select the best ingredients.

It’s no shocker that New York City real estate is sky high, and it’s only getting worse. As one of the most thriving food cities in the nation, this brings up a few concerns: When all is said and done, what happens to the underground restaurants? The favorite local gems? The family-run hole-in-the-walls? Despite what many proclaimed foodies put into the social universe, the NYC dining scene – the great spots – aren’t limited to just the see-and-be-seen venues. El Sombrero (Stanton St.) is a perfect example of a restaurant hanging on by a thread. 

But price hikes aren’t affecting just the independents or small chains – even prestigious venues are feeling the blow with doomsday in sight. Take the Four Seasons restaurant, for example. Read More
