Spanish chef Carlos has worked at 18 Michelin-starred restaurants throughout Europe. Born in Valencia, for more than six years he worked in Cahors, France, with Claude Marco, a classically-trained chef and former chef at Le Gavroche.
Later, he moved to Fribourg, Switzerland, to work with chef Pierrot Ayer, before heading to the UK to work for Daniel Galmiche at Cliveden House in Berkshire.
Following Galmiche’s departure, Carlos became Executive Head Chef of the property’s three restaurants, where he retained Waldo’s Michelin star and was one of ten finalists at the 2012 British Culinary Federation Chef of the Year competition.
After nine years at Cliveden House, Carlos spent several years working as executive head chef at The Stafford in London, and head chef at Maze by Gordon Ramsay.
Most recently he was appointed as Group Head Chef for Chucs Restaurants, a collection of four restaurants and cafés serving Italian favourites in sophisticated settings across London. In his role, Carlos develops the group’s menus and rolls out new openings.
Carlos is also responsible for the menus at private members’ health club KX and KXU in Chelsea, London.
