UK: The Langley, a Luxury Collection hotel, in Buckinghamshire have announced that Marco Ardemagni has joined the team as head chef.

Marco's appointment will see him responsible for driving forward the gastronomic vision of the new hotel upon its opening in early summer 2019.

The Langley is a 41-room boutique hotel and spa, comprising a historic mansion house and Grade II-listed former 18th century brew house.

The Langley's restaurant, Cedar, serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. The menu will focus on fresh and seasonal European cuisine. The Langley will also be home to the Churchill Bar, offering light bites for all-day dining, the Drawing Room, for afternoon teas, and the Spa Lounge, for spa dining. 

Head chef Marco Ardemagni has amassed over 15 years' experience within the hospitality industry, with roles that include Sushi Samba in London, and La Posta Vecchia and Il Pellicano in Italy, managing teams of up to 50 chefs and catering for upwards of 600 covers per day.

In his role at The Langley, Marco will work alongside the pre-opening team to develop the gastronomic concepts for Cedar, the Churchill Bar, the Drawing Room, Spa Lounge and the in-room dining options. Managing a team of chefs, Marco will oversee menu development and training for all gastronomic outlets, in addition to sourcing of local and seasonal ingredients and the creation of The Langley's kitchen garden.

On his appointment, Marco said: "I am delighted to have joined the team at The Langley as we approach the hotel's highly anticipated opening. Working closely alongside a highly skilled, creative and talented team of chefs and bar staff, I hope to help drive and develop an unparalleled dining experience for Buckinghamshire, drawing on the estate's spectacular setting and rich history to create fresh, seasonal and delicious dishes for our guests."

Joining Marco on the F&B team at The Langley will be head pastry chef Francesco Martella, formerly of Sushi Samba, La Posta Vecchia, L'Atelier de Joel Robouchon, Alain Ducasse at the Dorchester and Il Pellicano. Francesco will oversee the hotel's desserts, including petit fours at afternoon tea and a dessert trolley of confections to be served at Cedar. 

Hotel manager David Harris commented: "We are thrilled and so excited to welcome Marco and Francesco to the team here at The Langley. It's a huge bonus that they have worked closely together previously, both in London and Italy, and we are confident that their breadth of knowledge and experience working in high-pressure fine dining environments will help us to create a unique and elevated dining experience for our hotel guests and visitors."

The Langley and Cedar will open in early summer 2019.
