Adventurous, down-to-earth cooks with a love of great food, Billy and Jack met on BBC One’s MasterChef in 2016. The runners up charmed viewers across the nation with their playful, quirky takes on classic British dishes, including English Breakfast, Ham, Egg and Chips and Shepherd’s Pie. When the show came to an end, instead of hanging up their aprons, they teamed up as a duo.
United by their love of cooking and eating tasty food and their passion for creating memorable experiences, for the past year the duo has spent time crafting their style, cooking in unusual places and bringing people together to enjoy their imaginative dishes. Self-confessed food geeks, Billy and Jack are always open to innovative ideas and love a challenge. They have worked with a variety of brands, including designing the menu for and hosting the launch of Google Home and developing a series of super tasty dishes for Cancer Research UK.
