Jose Souto

 Chef Lecturer in Culinary Arts Westminster Kingsway College, London with a specialist interest in game. Jose has worked with Game-to-Eat on chef training days and cookery demonstrations for food press. 

Jose Souto studied at Westminster Kingsway College where he met the man that introduced him to game, Michael Hollingsworth, Chef Lecturer and Head of Culinary Arts.  After leaving the college and doing a stint abroad Jose worked as a Chef at the House of Commons for over 11 years. During his time at the Commons he also work at some of the top establishments in London while on working sabbaticals from the Commons, including the Intercontinental Park Lane, Mosimann’s, The Ritz London and the Savoy Grill.  During his time at the Commons he wrote a training manual on Game and through this he was asked to give a lecture back at the college where he started. Not long after this Jose took up a lecturing post at Westminster. Since then he has become one of the leading game chefs in the UK with an unrivalled knowledge of how to cook game, and also about its harvest and preparation.

Jose’s approach has always been to try to teach not only the chefs of tomorrow about game and its diversity but also to inform people of the ease in which game can be part of their everyday diet. As well as his lecturing job Jose travels around the country delivering game demonstrations at prestigious events such as the CLA , Holkham and Chatsworth Game fairs. He also delivers bespoke courses on game preparation and cookery at clients homes. Jose’s other love is the story of food, and he can be often heard telling his students: “All food has a story to tell and we should know that story so that not only as chefs but as customers of supermarkets and shops, we can better understand our food, its providence and how truly special it is.”



Jose is a Master member of the Craft Guild of Chefs and writes articles for its magazine, The Stockpot. Jose takes Craft Guild Chefs out on visits to experience and see how certain foods are grown, harvested and to give them an understanding on what makes these foods special. He has also written and appeared in many publications including: The Shooting Gazette, Countryman’s weekly, The Caterer, The Shooting Times, Pub Chef, Eat out, the Stock Pot and Cost Sector Catering.

Jose is a keen countryman living in Cambridgeshire with his wife Charlotte and their son Luis. He practices most country sports, Falconry and Stalking being the ones he loves most.
