Chris Bavin

Chris Bavin hosted all our guests in the Cookery Theatre on both days

Since a TV production company first stumbled across him in 2011 he has gone from strength to strength and is co-presenter of BBC1’s hugely successful series Eat Well for Less? with Gregg Wallace. The show has had incredible ratings and the accompanying book is a best seller.

In addition to Eat Well for Less? Chris has presented Tomorrow’s Food with Dara O’Brian and The Truth about Meat; he is co-presenter of BBC1’s returning series Food: Truth or Scare with Gloria Hunniford. Chris was the presenter for two series of BBC2’s Britain in Bloom and is a co-judge on BBC1’s prime time competition series Britain’s Best Home Cook with Mary Berry, Chef Angela Hartnett and presenter Claudia Winkleman. Chris is also a regular guest and reporter for The One Show.

Chris’s first solo cookbook, ‘Good Food, Sorted’, was published by Dorling Kindersley in March 2019. Excitingly, Chris’s second cookbook ‘Fakeaway: Healthy Homecooked Takeaway Meals’ will be published by Dorling Kindersley in January 2020.
