Apsleys, a Heinz Beck Restaurant announces new executive chef
The Lanesborough and Heinz Beck are delighted to announce that Beck’s protégée and number two at Three Michelin starred La Pergola in Rome, Heros De Agostinis, has taken over the reins of Apsleys, a Heinz Beck Restaurant in London.
Heros started his culinary career with an internship at Beck’s Three Michelin starred La Pergola in Rome in 1995 and has worked for some of the world’s most impressive chefs, including Three Michelin starred Heinz Winkler and Marc Veyrat. In addition, he ran the kitchens at Hotel Zirmerhorf in Italy, where he was Chef de Cuisine, and both Hotel Kempinski in both Indonesia and Slovenia, where he served as Executive Chef. He returned to La Pergola in 2009 and has spent the last three years as Beck’s culinary right hand man.
Beck will continue spending much of his time in London, overseeing the work in the kitchens of Apsleys and working closely with Heros and the rest of his handpicked brigade of chefs, the majority of whom have worked for him for many years.
