Who is Great British Menu finalist Sam Lomas?
SAM Lomas has won in the North West Heat of the Great British Menu 2022.
If success follows him into the final, the 26-year-old will see his menu served at a banquet in Alexandra Palace, London.
Who is Sam Lomas?
Chef Sam Lomas is representing the North West in the 2022 Great British Menu.
He comes from Macclesfield but has described Devon and the South West as his "constant inspiration" as this is where he learned about food and trained in cooking.
Sam is head chef at Glebe House Devon, a guest house, restaurant and smallholding.
His career has seen him teach cookery classes, and move briefly from the frying pan of the kitchen into the fire of politics – working for the Liberal Democrats.
The Great British Menu won't be the first culinary contest in this young chef's career.
At 18 he won a competition to be the apprentice of chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall.
While this apprenticeship gave him the skills needed to kick-start his culinary career, the title of Great British Menu winner would be sure to propel him even further.
