Charlie Wethered

Whilst reading History of Art and Chinese at Edinburgh University, Charlie spent a year living in Shanghai, during which he travelled throughout Asia. 

Charlie appeared on MasterChef in 2012. He then worked at Heston Blumenthal's 'Dinner' before developing his own range of Asian-inspired canapés. Quail London's first event was an artist's launch party held at Sladmore Contemporary for one hundred guests.

Focus PR, August 2017     

Thanks so much for this! I know, it was really smooth as always, and a pleasure having you around.

By the way, your son created a spectacular occasion for Christopher's 70th birthday. Our garden has never looked so stunning and the food really impressed our very foody extended family. They loved it. My sister in law was quite overwhelmed.

      Thanks again for all you and your team did yesterday – another year of great catering at the event.

Raise Your Hands Charity, July 2017

Thanks to you for providing such fantastic food and service. Yes indeed, we'll have to do more events together, defo adapted and overcame a fair few challenges during the day yesterday! 

Private Client, June 2017 

Once again you treated us to another 2 delicious lunches which Peter, myself and our guests thoroughly enjoyed. It's such a relief for me to hand over the reins to you as I have total confidence in everything you present to us and every mouthful is delicious. Have a great summer and same time next year !!!!

Everyone had a wonderful time and they were impressed by the food.

Well done yesterday and thank you! Great job! Please thank Doug and all your staff, they were great! 

Private Client, March 2017

I was v sorry not to see you in the scrum last night. So many people and you must have been flat out working on all those delicious canapés. You got the party off to a terrific start.

Eton College, March 2017

I shall never forget the dinner you cooked in late Feb in the Vice Provost's Lodge and I promise that where two or three are gathered together and one of the number needs a good chef I will pass on your details. 


We offer tastings for events of 100 guests or more. These are priced at £150, which can be redeemed after your event booking. We look forward to showcasing our canapes.

Cocktails & Mocktails

Pomegranate, Elderflower and Mint Spritzer (m)

This stunning mocktail combines Bottlegreen Pomegranate and Elderflower Cordial, a wedge of lemon, pomegranate seeds and a sprig of fresh mint. A bright pink head turning drink served over crushed ice and topped with sparkling water

Blue Curacao Virgin Mojito (m)

Blue Curacao provides the bright turquoise colour for this dazzling drink. A muddled lime and a sprig or two of mint add a zesty fresh finish. The high ball glass is then filled with a scoop of crushed ice and topped up with sparkling water. 

Dainty Damsel (c)

A delightful way to kick off a special evening. Sipsmith Damson Vodka adds a lovely rich plummy undertone to offset the acidity of the Prosecco, and gives it a deep pink hue at the same time.  The humble prosecco is elevated to a regal, majestic drink.  

Moscow Mule (c)

Sipsmith Sipping Vodka combines perfectly with Fever Tree Ginger Beer, a whole squeezed lime and a dash of Angostura Bitters to create a refreshing drink, perfect for a summer's evening.  

Gin and Tonic (c)

A high ball glass filled to the top with ice, a generous serve of Sipsmith VJOP (Very Junipery Over Proof) topped with a bottle of Fever Tree tonic and a lemon twist. A simple but mouth wateringly tasty drink. 


Virgin Bloody Mary (m)

Big Tom Tomato Juice is poured over ice before wasabi is freshly grated on top to give an extra kick. Finished with a stick of celery and a sprinkling of homemade celery salt to create the ultimate bloody mary. Perfect for a brunch party.

Dark and Stormy (c)

Amber coloured Fair Rum from Belize is the base for this classic cocktail. Fair work closely with The Fairtrade Foundation to ensure that it pays the farmers at a fair price. Fever Tree Ginger Beer and a wedge of Lime complete this storm in an ice-filled high ball glass.
