Since 2010 Dean Edwards family friendly cooking style has made him a firm favourite on ITV’s Lorraine. Making his debut on ITV’s This Morning in September 2009, he can now be found opposite Lorraine Kelly once a week where his friendly persona has made him a huge favourite to millions of viewers weekly.
After bursting onto the chef circuit - coming second in in BBC’s Masterchef Goes Large in 2006 - he sought to change his life radically, leaving his career as a 'digger driver' to pursue his love of cooking and food. A stint at the double Michelin-starred Midsummer House in Cambridge followed.
Bristol-born Dean’s ethos on food is that it should be achievable, simple and above all taste fantastic. “Food doesn’t have to be complicated,” he says.
The dad-of-one takes inspiration from across the globe but always uses ingredients familiar to us all. His passion for food is infectious and he’s spent the past nine years inspiring home cooks up and down the country to get back into the kitchen and enjoy the cooking experience.
He’s has also been a brand ambassador for British Eggs, Kikkoman soy sauce, British Asparagus, Bacofoil and the Groovy Food Company, to name but a few. He’s also been featured on shows including Good Morning Britain, Take on the Takeaway, Market Kitchen, Saturday Cookbook and The Big Eat.
A well known face on the foodie festival scene, Dean is the author of two cookbooks Mincespiration and most recently released Feel-Good Family Food to critical acclaim. Dean is also been a regular contributor to The Sun’s Fabulous magazine. He’s recently featured in the pages of many outlets including Daily Mail Online, Now magazine, BBC Easycook, Delicious magazine and the Sunday Post.
