Kim Woodward to become executive chef of D&D’s Skylon
D&D London announces that Kim Woodward has been appointed Executive Chef of Skylon, its modern European restaurant on London’s Southbank. Kim joins Skylon at the end of February.
Kim’s menus will be seasonal, sourcing produce from both the UK and mainland Europe, Kim comments that ‘the quality of ingredients available across the UK and within Europe is unrivalled in my eyes, we are so lucky to have such amazing choice so nearby.’ Kim’s career started at the age of 18, when she moved to the US for a culinary internship, which led to her spending over 5 years at Big Cedar Lodge, Missouri.
After returning to the UK she joined Gordon Ramsay Restaurants, starting out as Junior Sous Chef at Boxwood Café. Subsequent appointments included roles at Gordon Ramsay Plane Food, York & Albany and in 2015 she was named as the first ever female Head Chef in Savoy Grill’s 126-year history.
David Loewi said of the appointment: “We are delighted to be welcoming Kim to Skylon, as she’s undeniably one of London’s most acclaimed chefs. Skylon is a very special site for us, as it was the first restaurant D&D London opened after the business was founded in 2006. We are looking forward very much to seeing Kim implement her plans for the restaurant.”
Kim comments; “Skylon is a beautiful restaurant overlooking the river Thames, I couldn’t help but take a shine to this exciting venue! D&D London is one of the UK’s most progressive hospitality businesses and I look forward to this next phase in my career with the group.”
