Michelle star chef, Laurence Henry is one of the culinary world’s brightest young talents. From working in one of the country’s best restaurants, to competing in MasterChef: The Professional, Laurence has proven that he’s got the creativity, passion and talent to be an incredible chef. Hear Lawrence discuss his career journey and what he’s got planned next in an entertaining after dinner speech.
MasterChef: The Professionals winner 2018, Laurence Henry shot to fame after bagging top spot on the world famous cooking show. Throughout the competition he received immense praise from the professional judging panel for his fine dining food and innovative menus. After seven weeks of gruelling work in the kitchen, Laurence reached the final, where he plated up a three course meal, that one judge claimed they ‘have absolutely nothing critical to say’ about it. A testament to Laurence’s dedication to his art.
Prior to becoming a critically acclaimed chef, Laurence gained his skills as a chef de partie in one of Gordon Ramsey’s London restaurants. This early exposure to fine dining sparked Laurence’s interest and inspired him to work as a private chef in the french alps for a chalet. Working as a private chef taught him about the long hours and high expectations of guests when it comes to world class food. After returning to England in 2014, Laurence secured a number of sous chef positions in his home town of Nottingham before joining the award winning team of Sat Bains in 2017.
Currently, Laurence is in the process of turning his passion into business and setting up his own restaurant in Nottingham. Alongside his business aspirations, Laurence continues to work as the sous chef at Sat Bains Michelin star restaurant where he impresses guests with his flair for flavours. In the summer of 2019, Laurence was the famous face of Playa Day Club, Nottingham’s city beach club, where he ran the kitchen and crafted the menus for club goers.
Showing such success and promise for more, so early in his career, Laurence Henry is the ideal person to share an inspiring speech with the next generation, perform a world class cooking demonstration or book as an after dinner speaker.
