16/01/2017 - 11:29
D&D London has announced that Ben Murphy has been appointed as the new head chef at Launceston Place in Kensington.
Written by Andrew McClean
Murphy said: “It's exciting to be back working in West London after spending some time East. I feel now is the time where I can be more creative and show more of my own style, pushing myself and the team here on to a higher level.
“You can expect to find dishes that are extremely attractive to the eye, but with all the essential elements adding a distinct and bold taste.
“The menu will be based around the philosophy I grew up learning in both London and France; using simple seasonal ingredients yet maximising the flavour effectively.”
Murphy leaves his head chef position at The Woodford restaurant where he won London Evening Standard’s London Restaurant of the Year Award 2016.
Prior to his tenure at The Woodford he also worked at triple Michelin-Starred Les Prés d'Eugénie in the south of France, as well as three-Star Épicure Restaurant at Le Bristol in Paris, before returning to London’s Greenhouse Restaurant in Mayfair, which also holds two Michelin Stars.
