Our chefs

When it comes to conjuring up wonderfully creative recipes using all our carefully-sourced ingredients, we have two brilliantly experienced chefs at the helm: Alex Mackay and Sophie Michell.

They’ll help you shake up your go-to recipe collection. 

Alex Mackay

Alex Mackay

Alex is a cookery teacher and writer, with over 20 years of experience in food. Having won awards for his writing, run his own cookery school in Provence and directed at Raymond Blanc’s Cookery School, he’s a bit of a teaching maestro. So we feel very lucky to have him writing some of our recipes! What’s more, his Ready Steady Cook days mean he really does get what it takes to cook something uncompromisingly tasty in a rush. So his recipes are mightily practical, time efficient and brilliant for everyone.

Sophie Michell

Sophie Michell

Sophie is the UK’s youngest female executive chef and TV personality. Not only has she worked in some of London’s finest Michelin-starred restaurants, but she’s completely passionate about wholesome, nutritious food, and promoting healthy eating. She loves our range of simply cooked grains and pulses because they speed up slow food, making it possible for people in a hurry to eat really good, wholesome food. So she’s constantly coming up with exciting new recipes to spruce up your mealtime repertoire.
