Chef Biography

A native of Perigueux, France, Patrick Callarec was inspired by his father’s and grandmother’s culinary talents in classical French cooking.  At age 13, he entered a special culinary academy in Nice, France, training with master chefs.  Following school, he apprenticed at the Martinez Hotel in Cannes, later advancing down the street to the Carlton Hotel.  In 1981, he moved to Toronto’s Four Seasons Inn on the Park as saucier chef, working his way up to executive chef. 

In 1992 he joined the Ritz-Carlton Kapalua in Hawaii as executive chef.  Two years later, the Great Chefs television team showed up to tape Chef Callarec for their Great Chefs of the World television series for the Discovery Channel.

In 2000 he purchased the Chez Paul Restaurant in Maui, and ran that until 2009 when it closed, and he then moved to be the executive chef at the Ritz-Carlton San Francisco.  Eight months later, Disney called him to see if he would be interested in returning to Hawaii.  He said he would, even if he had to swim.  In 2010, he returned to Hawaii as executive chef of Aulani Disney Resort & Spa.  In 2013 his wife wanted to return to her home in Indonesia, so he accepted the position as executive chef at the Royal Tulip Bandung, and the following year, he moved over to the Ayana – Rimba Resort in Bali where he remains today.
