On Saturday we have Matt Tebbutt (Saturday) Matt presents Food Unwrapped on Channel 4. Series eight of this award-winning food show is now in production. Matt, along with Jimmy Doherty and Kate Quilton, present the food and science series that travels the world to lift the lid on what’s really in the food we eat.

Ben Bartlett (Saturday)

Ben Bartlett

From a young age, I knew I wanted to be a chef. My mother is a phenomenal cook and I learnt about meat, fish and game from her. Even now she won’t let me in her kitchen! I started my catering training in Bournemouth studying 7061 and 7062 Food Skills and got my first job at Forte’s Restaurant on the seafront as a commis chef. The kitchen worked with an old-fashioned brigade system so you moved around doing everything from peeling to washing! It was great training.

Laurence Henry (Sunday)

Laurence is the MasterChef Professionals winner of 2018.

Having trained at Ashburton Chefs Academy, Laurence went on to work in the kitchens of some of the world’s finest chefs, including Sat Bains, Gordon Ramsay and Jason Atherton. He has an enormous breadth of expertise under his hat. His passion for Asian food plays an integral part in his cuisine maintaining simplicity with plenty of flavour.

Laurence Henry – Winner of MasterChef Professionals 2018

Sat Bains and John Freeman spotted his talent and have mentored and pushed him to grow as a chef. His versatility in the kitchen was very evident in the 2018 MasterChef: The Professionals series where, having cooked a lamb dish that was so impressive, the Observer Critic, Jay Rayner, said: “I have nothing critical to say!” Fellow judge, Marcus Wareing added: “He is inventive, creative and he leaves nothing behind in the kitchen. In my opinion he is the next generation.”

Laurence lives in Nottingham, where he worked for two years at Restaurant Sat Bains as his Sous Chef. Aged just 25 at the time of filming MasterChef, he is now looking to take advantage of his MasterChef win and see where this takes him.

Laurence has been interested in food from a young age. He always enjoyed cooking with his mum and dad who are both fantastic cooks. As a student his ambition was to be a Doctor like the rest of his family but whilst doing weekend work at a local restaurant he fell in love with the idea of becoming a chef.

Among his many engagements, Laurence is also working on a range of private dining events where he will showcase his culinary skills for a wide variety of guests. Laurence has gained a huge following on Instagram since the show transmitted in December 2018. He has over 50,000 followers and it’s rising rapidly!

Laurence plans to open his own restaurant concept in the not too distant future.
