The Royal Horseguards has announced the appointment of new executive chef Graham Chatham, who joins the luxury hotel from The Langham.
Chatham boasts over 26 years experience in hotels and fine dining restaurants, and will be overseeing the culinary operations at The Royal Horseguards’ restaurant One Twenty One Two.
He is set to launch a new menu for the 2 AA Rosette restaurant in June.
He said: “Suppliers are key to our success and the relationships we form with them to bring the very best ingredients to the table. Good husbandry, ethical animal welfare and provenance is what I insist upon.”
Beginning his career at Le Meridien Piccadilly, Chatham has worked his way around some of the best restaurants in London including the famous Rules Restaurant in Covent Garden, with two years cooking in Denmark.
Graham is a member of The Royal Academy of Culinary Arts and is passionate about training young chefs, having always supported the Academy in the apprenticeship scheme.
He is also involved with Chefs Adopt A School, a programme run by the academy that aims to tackle specific health inequalities and also the lack of knowledge about food and healthy eating.
Ian Fletcher, general manager of The Royal Horseguards said: “We are so excited to have Graham Chatham on board as our new Executive Chef. He has incredible experience in creating exciting and inventive dishes and we can’t wait to see what he has in store for the hotel.”
