John Torode is one of the UK’s best-known chefs and TV presenters. He is the host and judge of BBC1’s top-rating MasterChef, Celebrity MasterChef and Junior MasterChef and presenter of A-Z of Cooking on BBC2. There will also be some exciting new shows coming soon.
Torode’s latest work is My Kind of Food, a very personal cookbook, full of the food that he loves to cook and eat.
Torode went back to his roots with a culinary road trip across Australia for his series John Torode’s Australia, which was the top-performing show of 2014 on the Good Food channel, with a 70% above slot average and which has also just aired on Watch.
A popular TV personality, much sought after by many shows, Torode has hosted Have I Got News For You and Saturday Kitchen, and has made numerous guest appearances on BBC Breakfast, Loose Women, Alan Carr, The Alan Titchmarsh Show and National Lottery Stars.
Torode also writes regularly for Good Food, Olive, Waitrose Magazine, Good Housekeeping, Red and Delicious and he appears at all the annual BBC Good Food Shows. Torode is in great demand for all the regional food festivals, where his cookery demos are sell-outs.
