Laurence Henry

Laurence Henry is the MasterChef Professionals winner of 2018. Having trained at Ashburton Chefs Academy, Laurence went on to work in the kitchens of some of the world’s finest chefs, including Sat Bains, Gordon Ramsay and Jason Atherton. Laurence has an enormous breadth of expertise. His passion for Asian food plays an integral part in his cuisine maintaining simplicity with plenty of flavour.
Sat Bains and John Freeman spotted his talent and have mentored and pushed him to grow as a chef. His versatility in the kitchen was very evident in the 2018 MasterChef: The Professionals series where, having cooked a lamb dish that was so impressive, the Observer Critic, Jay Rayner, said: “I have nothing critical to say!” Fellow judge, Marcus Wareing added: “He is inventive, creative and he leaves nothing behind in the kitchen.  In my opinion he is the next generation.”
Laurence lives in Nottingham, where he worked for two years at Restaurant Sat Bains as his Sous Chef. Aged just 25 at the time of filming MasterChef. Laurence has been interested in food from a young age. He always enjoyed cooking with his mum and dad who are both also fantastic cooks. Laurence has gained a huge following on Instagram since the show transmitted. Laurence plans to open his own restaurant concept in the not too distant future.
