Germany: Pentahotels has appointed John King as executive chef to oversee "gastronomic innovation and the creation of top-quality, yet unpretentious dining experiences".

The lifestyle hotel brand says it aspires to challenge conventions in the world of hospitality. "One of the biggest challenges for its new executive chef will be to create a globally adaptable dining concept that fits the brand philosophy. While comfort food and regional classics are the mainstays of this strategy, the master chef also has to be the guardian of quality and authenticity," it says.

John King is a longstanding member of the company. Described as "a Brit who has been conjuring up his magic in pentahotel kitchens since 2009, he arrived with an exceptional, international background in the high-end culinary world, including Burj Al Arab in Dubai, The Little Nell Hotel in Aspen, Colorado, The Gleneagles Hotel in Scotland, The Savoy in London, and Four Seasons Hotel at Park Lane in London".

pentahotels' managing director Alastair Thomann said: "John's work has been excellent over the last eight years and has made a major impact on the kitchens in all of our locations. I am convinced that John will fill the position as our first executive chef perfectly, and continue to delight our guests with his special line in good, honest comfort food."
