Prue Leith

Prue Leith is featured in the following program(s):

Prue Leith is one of the country's foremost culinary experts, and her distinguished career has seen her as a restaurateur, caterer, food teacher, food writer, novelist (her stories are full of food too) television cook... and even a radio cook on the Today programme.

Prue is the founder of Leith's cookery school, which has seen many thousands of students pass through its doors, including the likes of Diana Henry, Lorraine Pascale and Gizzi Erskine. Her interest in proper training and education led to involvement with endless charities to do with chef training, teaching children to cook in schools and training

young people. She has set up several successful charities teaching children and young people to cook. She's had a life outside food too. She has chaired many organizations, including the Restaurant Association, Ashridge Management College, the Royal Society of Arts, 3E's (a not-for-profit education company turning round failing

schools) and The School Food Trust, charged by the government to improve school meals.

She has published twelve cookery books, seven novels and a biography Relish: My Life on a Plate. She has been the cookery correspondent for The Daily Mail, Sunday Express, and The Guardian and now writes regularly for The Spectator.

Before joining The Great British Bake Off, Prue was a judge on the BBC's Great British Menu and C4's My Kitchen Rules.
