Quality and creativity are the hallmarks of Pascal’s  menu including fresh prime ingredients embellished with an innovative twist that enhances the flavours. A champion of locally grown produce Pascal inherited his love of ‘home grown’produce from his mother Lea Canevet.

“Seasonal locally sourced produce is a passion of mine; of course I’m creative and love presenting food beautifully but the delicate balance of flavour  is what I’m all about”

When choosing ingredients for Maison Bleue owner-chef Pascal takes time to ensure he knows the provenance, from farm to plate. He takes time to visit farms and get to know his suppliers; many now good friends.


His passion for cooking was influenced by his mother. Hints of childhood recipes are still retained within his menu’s and he always shares new ideas with her.

“It’s incredibly important to help future generations understand  sustainability and seasonality. Flavour is the key to good nutrition, we need to experience the real delicate flavour of fresh, natural produce, we need to engage our senses, smell, touch and taste”
