It is not common to meet a Chef with a military decoration and a public praise by the Air Force. Such is the case of Carlos Marques who began his professional culinary career in the Armed Forces, where he served several State Ministries and the Presidency of the Republic.

His entrepreneurial spirit and taste for gastronomy – at age 10 he sold his creamy sponge cake to his mother's friends – allied to his military training and his constant desire to learn, led him to climb quickly through the ranks of the kitchens from Marriot Resort in Praia D'el Rey and Altis Avenida in Lisbon, later taking command of the brigades at renowned hotels such as the Altis Grand Hotel, the Penha Longa Ritz-Carlton and the Tróia Design Hotel. He was also the Executive Chef on the tourist cruises along the river Douro under the brand Douro Azul, as well as at the luxury resort Six Senses Douro Valley.

His journey also includes experiences at Michelin starred kitchens, as is the example of The Yeatman, in Porto, and of Pétrus, Chef Gordon Ramsay’s restaurant in London. He has also worked at Hotel Bulgari Milan alongside Chef Roberto Di Pinto.

Carlos Marques currently lives in the north of Portugal, where he is a consultant to restaurant businesses and a private Chef, enjoying his passion for the outdoors whenever possible. Hence, do not be surprised when the Chef comes to your house and presents one of his delicacies on a sea-polished rock, collected on one of his walks.

Experiência fantástica que superou largamente as nossas expetativas. O Chef foi extremamente profissional, disponível, descontraído e a ementa estava maravilhosa. Escolhemos o menu "Do rio ao campo" e não podíamos ficar mais satisfeitos. Ingredientes intensos e deliciosos, confecionados de forma soberba. Cada prato era explicado ao pormenor e o sabor correspondia na perfeição. É uma experiência extraordinária para desfrutar com os amigos, no conforto do lar. Com o Chef Carlos Marques a cozinhar, vai ser um menu de arrasar!
