The Great British Menu contestant will take on the head chef role at one of Cornwall’s destination hotels this autumn
Charlotte Vincent has been announced as the new head chef of Hotel Meudon near Falmouth. Establishing her career in Devon, the Food Reader Awards Best Chef finalist spent nearly a decade working alongside Michael Caines at The Royal Clarence and Gidleigh Park before taking on her first head chef role at The Five Bells Inn at Clyst Hydon.
During her time in Devon, Charlotte secured The Five Bells a spot in the Estrella Damm Top 50 Gastropubs list and competed in BBC2’s Great British Menu. She describes her cooking style as ‘modern British with Scandinavian and French influence’ and will be launching her first menu at Hotel Meudon this autumn. The hotel on the South West Coast Path reopened in March 2021 after thorough refurbishment.
Charlotte said of her new position: ‘I’m absolutely thrilled to be part of the wonderful team at Hotel Meudon. I’m incredibly excited to be drawing influence from the beautiful, abundant gardens here and using the wonderful larder that Cornwall has to offer. I’m also looking forward to working with the team to produce some delightful dishes inspired by the rugged beauty of the coast and Bream Cove.’
