London, England – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine

Queen Elizabeth II has appointed Paul Gayler, chef de cuisine at The Lanesborough, as a member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (MBE) for services to the hospitality industry and various charities. Announced as part of the Queen’s Birthday Honors on June 16, members are selected for outstanding achievements and service to society. Established in 1917 by Queen Elizabeth’s grandfather King George V, the MBE honors people who have served the country in civilian roles. The list of honorees is released each year on the British Monarch’s birthday.

“Since opening The Lanesborough in 1991, we have had the privilege of having Chef Gayler on our team,” said Geoffrey Gelardi, managing director of The Lanesborough. “Paul’s achievement in receiving this award is a testament to his extraordinary talent and commitment to the industry. This outstanding accolade is well-deserved and we are extremely honored to be a part of the celebration.”

Over the last 21 years, Chef Gayler has played an indispensable role in building The Lanesborough’s international acclaim for fine dining experiences. Prior to joining The Lanesborough, he served as head chef of Inigo Jones Banqueting House.

Chef Gayler is also a celebrated food writer with over 20 titles to his name. His most recent titles include A Passion for Potatoes and The World in Bite Size: Taps, Mezze and Other Tasty Morsels. Chef Gayler has sold books worldwide that have been translated into ten different languages. He has also appeared on a variety of culinary shows such as BBC2’s Saturday Kitchen and Radio 4’s VegTalk.
