Born and bred in Sweden, Carl decided to become a chef aged 15, having grown up in the ski resort of Åre, home to one of the finest catering colleges in the country, Åre Hotell and Restaurang Skola.
After moving to the UK, Carl clocked up more than 10 years of industry experience at the heart of the culinary capital, London. His illustrious portfolio includes a stint as Senior Sous Chef at Searcys at the Gherkin, and another as Head Chef at Seven Park Place, a Michelin-starred restaurant in Mayfair, where he was part of the 4 AA Rosette team.
