Carla Henriques is the Executive Pastry Chef for Hawksmoor and Foxlow restaurants in London. Carla’s passion for desserts and pastry came from a childhood spent mixing, folding, baking and bowl-licking alongside her mum who managed a bakery in Portugal specialising in traditional Portuguese pastries. This love o baking led Carla to London and a career in restaurants as a Pastry Chef. She learnt English on the job, one ingredient at a time and moved around picking up new skills. In 2010 she joined Hawksmoor as a Head Pastry Chef and is now Executive Pastry Chef for the group. She works to continually develop its pudding menus and make sure it is doing something special with them.
