The Wolseley Hospitality Group has promoted David Stevens to group executive chef, ahead of its plans to launch two further restaurants in the capital next year.

In his new role, Stevens, who was previously head chef at The Wolseley in London's Piccadilly, will oversee the launch of Manzi’s in Soho and The Wolseley City​ in 2023, and will also play a pivotal role in mentoring and developing the next generation of senior chefs through the group and supporting its head chef team.

The Wolseley Hospitality Group previously operated under the Corbin & King moniker and rebranded back in June​ after its major shareholder, Minor International, acquired full control of the group​ from co-founder Jeremy King.

Stevens was born in Brisbane, Australia, where he undertook his initial chefs training, which included an apprenticeship at the Brisbane Hilton working with master pastry chef, Walter Peters.

In the 90s he relocated to Europe where he gained experience at Michelin-starred establishments including Fleur de Sel in Haslemere, Surrey; Chateau de Montreuil in France; and Dolder Grand in Zurich.

He joined Caprice Holdings as pastry chef at The Ivy in 1998 before leaving to start his own business, called Proof is in the Pudding, which he operated for eight years.

Stevens joined Corbin & King in 2013 as head pastry chef at The Wolseley, before becoming head chef in 2017.
