With over 20 years of TV experience, Loyd Grossman is widely regarded as one of the original luminaries of competitive cookery shows.
His first break in TV was on Through the Keyhole, where he made over 400 appearances across a 15-year period. Not long after this, he became the first presenter on the groundbreaking show MasterChef.
His time on MasterChef firmly secured him as one of the most recognizable faces of British TV and one of the most respected food critics in the country. He has published 8 successful books, and in 2003 was presented with an OBE for services to Patient Care in the NHS, for his work in the Better Hospital Foods project.
Since then, he has lent his name to pasta and curry sauces, manufactured by Premier Foods, which have gone on to sell more than one billion units. In 2013 he was a judge on ITV Food’s Food Glorious Food.READ FULL BIO
