Marianne Lumb Biography – Marianne Lumb Wiki
Marianne Lumb is an award-winning chef and restaurateur. A classically trained chef, Marianne became a private chef to the Sainsbury, Soros and then Bamford families. She was a finalist on the BBC’s 2009 series of MasterChef: The Professionals and Great British Menu in 2018. She is also a regular on BBC’s ‘Saturday Kitchen Live’.
Marianne’s food journey began early with her father, Steve, being the village butcher until his death in 1979. She enrolled in an architecture degree at University College London, before deciding that cooking was where her true passion lay. She progressed through restaurants, to the Michelin starred Gravetye Manor, and then to become a private chef for high profile clients.
In demand as a private chef, she went on to work for a number of high profile clients, including the Bamford, Sainsbury and Soros families. She cooked for celebrities such as Sir Elton John, Lulu and Joanna Lumey.
Her career has also involved working as a consultant, teaching at the prestigious Leith’s School of Food and Wine, and writing. Her first book, Kitchen Knife Skills, was completed just before her MasterChef experience began.
In 2013, Marianne opened London’s smallest fine dining restaurant, Restaurant Marianne, with only 14 covers, a 25 sq ft dining room and a team of three. In 2017, the restaurant came 33rd in the UK Good Food Guide Top 100, and was voted ‘Top Gastronomic experience in London’ by Harden’s guide.
After five years at the helm, Marianne returned to being a private chef, cooking and travelling in the UK, the Mediterranean, America and Australia.

Marianne Lumb Great British Menu
Marianne Lumb is representing the Central region in Great British Menu. Joining her are Thom Bateman, chef patron of The Flintlock in Cheddleton, Tom Shepherd, chef patron of Upstairs in Lichfield, and Kareem Roberts, head chef at Trinity in Cambridge.
The theme for this year’s competition is inspired by Paddington’s 65th birthday and a celebration of British animation and illustration – from cartoons to comics to computer games.
She is reimagining the Melton Mowbray pie in a playful take on ‘Private Eye,’ and will be taking inspiration from classic British animation ‘The Magic Roundabout.’
