Consultancy

Thank you for your interest in CBC.

At Carter’s of Moseley, the restaurant’s focus is to be an expression of British terroir within the moment, offering a seasonal menu that currently uses 98% indigenous, natural British ingredients. Although I specialise in British cuisine, I’m very well informed on World food. I can help with any concept and have a broad, varied knowledge of many countries traditions and dishes. Please feel free to ask.

I’m available to work with you and your company to enhance all aspects of your hospitality establishment or food development business and help you achieve your goals. I’m also flexible with times and can work anywhere in the UK and further afield.

I have 20 years of experience as a professional chef, and have had my restaurant Carters of Moseley since 2010 and held a coveted Michelin star since 2015. I have achieved and held three rosettes for over four years, 6/10 in the Good Food Guide, & regularly feature in the Restaurant Magazine top 100 in the UK. I’m an author of a sellout cookbook, ‘Staff’, which focuses on food my staff and I eat in the restaurant. A home cookbook with a real difference. I also won ‘Sustainable Chef Of The Year’ with Olive Magazine in 2018. I’ve made many appearances on BBC 1’s Saturday Kitchen, made regular appearances at The Good Food Show at the NEC Birmingham and judged at the UK’s street food awards.

Please see below the skills and services I can offer to help advance your business, including links for some of my food reviews and references.
