3# Lawrence Keogh.

Lawrence Keogh, new executive head chef for D&D London is our man this month. In his new role, Lawrence oversees food throughout the venue, which comprises the New Street Grill, Fish Market, New Street Wine, and the Old Bengal Bar. Lawrence brings with him a wealth of experience at some of the UK’s leading restaurants. These include Roast, Kensington Place, Quo Vadis (where he worked as head chef for Marco Pierre White), and most recently The Wolseley where Lawrence was head chef. In Lawrence’s own words: My aim is to create a classic dining experience, with some favourite dishes. The city is busier and buzzier than ever and this is a great opportunity to create some excitement about the food in each of the outlets. As well as a successful career inside the kitchen, Lawrence is patron of The National Kidney Federation and an ambassador for Kidney Research UK. In addition, he is an academician member of the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts where he is actively involved in the Chefs Adopt a School Programme, bringing culinary insight into food technology to children under the age of 16.
