Mark Threadgill Great British Menu

Gwynedd-born Mark Threadgill is one of the four chefs competing for Wales in BBC Two’s Great British Menu. The 2023 competition is inspired by animation and illustration celebrating Paddington’s 65th birthday. His menu is a nod to Welsh fantasy animation, both classic – The Tales of Mabinogion, and modern – Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom.

With Welsh as his first language, and as a champion of Welsh ingredients, Mark is thrilled to be representing his home country in the Great British Menu Kitchen.

Threadgill returned to the competition in 2023 with even more drive and determination, to hopefully take him all the way this time round after being knocked out in a tie-break in 2022. The others returning include Georgia Sommerin, head chef at Michelin-starred restaurant Home in Penarth, and Tom ‘Westy’ Westerland, who developed his style at Michelin-starred Lucknam Park. They are joined by first-time contestant Simmie Vedi from Cardiff.
