With an expertly honed culinary skill set, Leiths Food & Wine-trained, Chef Charles brings a wealth of experience to the table. He began his career under the mentorship of renowned Head Chef Steve Groves at the acclaimed Roux at Parliament Square. Building on this solid foundation, Charles went on to gain invaluable Michelin Star experience while serving at the prestigious The Westbury in Mayfair with Chef Alyn Williams, where he wowed guests. Most recently, Charles was at The Grill @ The Dorchester Hotel, one of London’s most iconic luxury hotels on Park Lane where he spent 4 years under Tom Booton. Here, he cooked exquisite British seasonal menus that are nothing short of masterpieces. For his private dining clients, Charles brings together his wealth of experience and a deep appreciation for culinary traditions passed down from his grandmother in Spain. He creates unforgettable dining experiences for his clients, focusing on a perfect balance of refined luxury and comforting family favourites.
My Abuela had a huge wealth of cooking knowledge, and experience which she was always eager to pass down and share with me. Cooking with her was always fun and extremely rewarding. I was prepping game at the age of 5!
As a family we use to live in Spain, so this has a massive influence on my cooking style, my food style is using great produce, simply and freshly. I love fish cookery which is a massive part of the little town were we use to live.
Cooking, creating memorable moments and making a smile is certainly something which keeps me going! I also am very grateful to be so hands on and able to use the high class ingredients and produce I use, living in London enables me to source such great things!
