Irini Tzortzoglou

Irini Tzortzoglou is the charming winner of MasterChef 2019.  Throughout the competition she used a variety of traditional Greek ingredients in dishes which consistently impressed the judges as well as guest chefs such as Raymond Blanc and Michel Roux Jr.  In the competition final, her take on classic Greek dishes which she elevated to a new level in her uniquely playful style won over judges, John Torode & Gregg Wallace and she was crowned the victor.
Since winning MasterChef, Irini is thrilled to be writing her first book which will be published by Headline in July 2020. Irini’s debut cookbook, Under the Olive Tree: Recipes from my Greek Kitchen, is filled with Irini’s signature dishes that range from everyday meals for the home cook, or special creations for entertaining. As well as her recipes, Irini divulges her top tips and tricks for those moments when you have a little more time or want to impress.
Recently Irini has trained to become an Olive Oil Sommelier and plans to use this impressive credential throughout 2020 with olive oil tastings and demos, showcasing her extensive knowledge and the huge benefits and versatility of olive oil.
Irini was born in a small village on the island of Crete, and now lives in the picturesque village of Cartmel in Cumbria. Irini is very involved in the local community – belonging to the Cartmel in Bloom group and Cartmel Village Society.
