D&D London has officially launched its new party planning company Cinnamon Candy, which aims to provide a one-stop-shop for special events.
The company, which announced it would be led by head chef Mike Dewing (formerly head chef at The Admirable Crichton) in June this year, will also see Marina Souter (previously at Rhubarb Food Design) join the team.
Dewing said: "I'm delighted to have been given such an exciting opportunity with D&D London. I look forward to building a brand new business whilst taking advantage of the fantastic D&D London team."
Cinnamon Candy will tap into D&D's resources to offer signature drinks and dishes linked to the group's portfolio, whilst also offering its own unique food and design service.
D&D chefs like Mickael Weiss from Coq d'Argent or Allan Pickett from Plateau can be used to plan or introduce menus, or Le Pont de la Tour sommelier Nicolas Clerc can create a bespoke wine list for an event.
David Loewi, managing director, D&D London, added: "This is an exciting new development for D&D London and a natural progression from the current offering. We have some fabulous talent within the group, on whose expertise we hope to draw, in order to offer a very individual events experience."
