One Aldwych hotel executive chef returns to New Zealand

The One Aldwych hotel in central London is recruiting for a new executive chef after Mark Gregory returned to New Zealand with his family.

Gregory joined the five-star property in April 1998, in the pre-opening period before the hotel opened its doors to the public in July that year, presiding over the Axis and Indigo restaurants.

He has also been head chef of the Chelsea Hotel, corporate head chef for Brent Walker Hotels, executive head chef at Brocket Hall, Hertfordshire and opening head chef of T'su (now known as Itsu) in London.

Although he was born in the UK, Gregory trained in New Zealand, where picked up a host of awards, including Best New Zealand College Student 1981 and three times New Zealand Chef of the Year Award (1983, 1986 and 1987). He was Cultural Ambassador to the New Zealand Government in 1986 and 1990 promoting the country's gastronomic diversity abroad.

Jens Folkel and Alex Wood remain head chefs of Axis and Indigo respectively.
