Cavalier approach for Charlton House

Michelin-starred chef David Cavalier has joined contract caterer Charlton House. In his role as food innovation director, he will help the company to retain existing contracts and win new ones.

Cavalier was previously head chef at Conrad Gallagher's Peacock Alley restaurant in Dublin. Before that, he was head chef of the former High Holborn restaurant in London.

He said that his job in the contract catering industry would be "an interesting challenge".

He added that he would not miss working in Michelin-starred restaurants. "It makes no difference," he said. "Some of the dining rooms that Charlton House has knock spots off high-street restaurants."

His new chief executive, Robyn Jones, said: "We know that many of our competitors use high-profile chefs on a consultancy basis. This is a totally different situation, in that David is now part of the company and will work closely with Charlton House staff on all levels."

Charlton House has 85 contracts. Its projected turnover for 2002 is £27m.
