D&D London has appointed Chris Johns as head chef of its events and outdoor catering company Alexander & Björck, which it launched last year as a joint venture with Lena Björck.
Johns joins from Gordon Ramsay's Maze, where he held the position of sous chef. Prior to that he was head chef at Soho's Antidote wine bar, where he worked closely with Michelin-starred chef consultant Mikeal Jonsson of Hedone.
He has also worked in Michelin-starred restaurants including L'autre Pied in London and L'Enclume in Cartmel.
His menus for Alexander & Björck will draw inspiration from around the world, offering a tailored approach for each client and event.
He made his debut with D&D London for the company's spring campaign Blossom City.
Lena Björck, managing director at Alexander & Björck, said: "I am very excited to welcome Chris into our ‘family'. With his broad experience, he is well positioned to take Alexander & Björck to the next level and establish it as a leading event company in the UK."
D&D London has more than 30 sites in London, Leeds, Paris, New York and Tokyo including Le Pont de La Tour, Coq d'Argent, Bluebird, Skylon, Quaglino's, German Gymnasium and Sartoria.
