Ian Waghorn has been appointed as head chef of D&D London's two-AA-rosette restaurant Kensington Place in Kensington, London.
He has been promoted from a senior sous chef position at D&D restaurant 100 Wardour Street in Soho. He previously worked at Michelin-starred restaurant Kitchen W8, South Kensington, London, and at the Vineyard in Stockcross, Berkshire, when it achieved two Michelin stars.
The menu at Kensingon Place has been redeveloped, with the introduction of lighter dishes including: smoked anchovy and broccoli salad with Tunworth and gem; confit Cornish cod, glazed pumpkin, kale, chilli and lime; and spelt risotto, autumnal squash, chanterelles and chestnuts
Waghorn said: "Kensington Place is about to enter its 30th year, positioned in the heart of Notting Hill. Its longevity is a result of its commitment to serve consistently fresh and flavourful food. I look forward to encompassing this ethos, whilst putting my own stamp on the menu to ensure that it remains as a local favourite for the next 30 years."
D&D London owns and operates 35 restaurants around the world, including the Michelin-starred Angler and the South Place hotel both in Moorgate, London.
