Biography

John Whaite is a British baker, cook, chocolatier He gained a diploma in patisserie from the revered Le Cordon Bleu School of Culinary Arts, and has published several cookbooks, including John Whaite Bakes and John Whaite Bakes at Home. He is resident chef on ITV's breakfast show, Lorraine.

Food has always been John's passion. He grew up on a dairy farm where he learned about British produce and the importance of supporting local food producers and artisan crafters. His parents also owned a fish and chip shop, where John started his first job - as potato peeler - at just 10. Even earlier than that, he was always keen to make 'a living' from food, selling bags of pick and mix to his peers at school - without the teachers knowing, of course.

Gaining a first class degree in Law from the University of Manchester after declining a place to study at Oxford University, John decided to hang up the gown and don the apron, a decision spurred on after he won the third series of the BBC’s The Great British Bake Off.

He lives with his partner in South East London.
