Book Jake Lucas
Jack Lucas made his way through to the finals of MasterChef (BBC1) 2014. Everybody followed his journey as if it was their own! Jack was extremely popular with viewers and won enormous praise from some of the world’s top chefs. Growing up on wholehearted British food perfected by his mum and Gran, Jack was always interested in food. His interests only truly thrived while he was working as a waiter in a local restaurant during his late teens. He spent hours at University researching recipes, and flavour combinations. Juggling his varied interests in cricket, cooking and academics, Jack graduated with a 1st in Geography.
His girlfriend encouraged Jack to enter MasterChef, where after breezing through the initial rounds, Jack pushed the limits to reach the finals as the youngest ever contestant to reach the final at the age of 21. During the contest, the exposure to top chefs greatly improved his skills and understanding of cooking. Cooking for Ferran Adria of El Bulli in Barcelona was one of the highlights of his journey in the show.
Soon after completing the MasterChef competition, Jack travelled the world and tried different and varied cuisines, from South American to Asian. His cooking is now influenced by his expanded repertoire and interests in different styles of food.
Jack Lucas is designing menus and cooking for pop up events and restaurants, including the MasterChef Restaurant and Bar at the Blue Fin Building. He will also be doing private dining events , with MasterChef The Professionals finalist and head chef of The Caxton Grill, Adam Handling.
