Great British Menu (judge)
The Great British Bake Off (judge)
My Kitchen Rules (judge)
South African-born Michelin starred chef and writer who gave up penning cookbooks and running her acclaimed cookery school to become a novelist, but has kept her hand in as a judge on various TV cookery contests, most prominently an eleven-year tenure on Great British Menu. When the The Great British Bake Off moved to Channel 4, she quickly emerged as a likely candidate to succeed Mary Berry, but months of speculation and denials followed before she was formally announced as the new judge in March 2017.
Was appointed CBE in 2010.
