Former QE2 head chef Murry Lane has taken over from Alexandre Szkaradkiewicz as head chef at Bleu Blanc by David Myers.
Lane moves to the Renaissance Downtown Hotel Dubai concept following a five year spell in Dubai which has seen him work at La Brasserie at Atlantis and Barrel 12 at Palm Jumeirah before joining QE2 for its pre-opening.
Speaking to Caterer Middle East, Lane said: “Being appointed chef de cuisine at a well-established restaurant such as Bleu Blanc is probably one of the biggest challenges but also greatest opportunities I have encountered in my career. I am excited about joining the talented Bleu Blanc family to maintain and improve the great F&B offering team that already exists while also bringing my personality as a chef to the brand.”
UK-born chef Lane will now head the kitchen at the Southern French farmhouse inspired restaurant headlined by ‘gypsy chef’ David Myers.
Previous head chef Szkaradkiewicz left the role to become executive sous chef at Emirates Flight Catering.
