Ainsley Harriott Biography

Celebrity chef and Ready Steady Cook presenter Ainsley Harriott is quick-witted, charismatic and a consummate professional.

Although singing and performing was his first love (he co-founded the Calypso Twins in the early 90’s) Ainsley’s cooking career began when he was offered an apprenticeship at an East End restaurant at the age of 16.

After years of hard work in the kitchen, Ainsley rose to Head Chef position at Lord's Cricket Ground's Long Room.

He worked as a chef in many restaurants in London including the Dorchester, Brown's, The Hilton, The Westbury, Café Pelican and Quaglino's.

Simultaneously his foray into TV and radio began. While at Lords he was asked to present More Nosh, Less Dosh on BBC Radio 5, and he then secured a small role in sci-fi comedy Red Dwarf in 1993, and eventually became resident chef on Good Morning with Anne and Nick.
