Gregg Wallace

Gregg co-presents BBC2’s MASTERCHEF GOES LARGE with John Torode. The fourth series was a huge success on BBC1 in Spring 2008 and a fifth series of 40 episodes is currently being shown on BBC 2.

Three series of CELEBRITY MASTERCHEF (15 half hour episodes) have gone out on prime time BBC1 to huge audiences. A fourth series of 25 episodes is planned for 2009. Gregg presented the first series of MASTERCHEF: THE PROFESSIONALS with Michel Roux Jr. on BBC2 in September 2008.

Co presenter of Radio Four’s VEG TALK for seven years, Gregg was also the original presenter of BBC’s SATURDAY KITCHEN and SATURDAY KITCHEN LIVE in 2002/3. Also for Radio Four, Gregg has written and presented ‘Stocking Up: a History of Preserved Food’, indulging his other passion as an amateur historian.

His love of food led him to present Discovery Channel VEG OUT and FOLLOW THAT TOMATO for The Food Channel, resulting in a Royal Television Society award for Best Lifestyle Programme in 2003.

He writes on food, regularly contributing to Olive Magazine and BBC Good Food magazine.

His first book, VEG, was published in May 2006 by Mitchell Beazley. A COOK’S YEAR was published in 2007.

He is managing director of Gregg’s Veg, based at Hurst Farm, which oversees the growing and distribution of British home grown produce to a large percentage of London restaurants.

In what Gregg’s ex-wife used to laughingly refer to as his spare time, he is a qualified rugby coach, coaching the under 12’s at London Welsh.
