With his Italian good looks and Yorkshire-born manners, Joe Hurd is bringing a new cooler charm to cooking. A self-proclaimed blue-collar cook, he is not afraid of getting his hands dirty and creating Anglo-Italian food all can enjoy.
His TV credits include The Munch Box, Travel Channel, ‘The Saturday Show’ and BBC1’s Saturday Kitchen.
He has worked in restaurants alongside revered chefs such as Francesco Mazzei, Claude Bosi and José Pizarro, as well as behind-the-scenes on shows for Paul Hollywood and Heston Blumenthal. But his real passion lies in his Monday night supper clubs where, true to his Yorkshire-Calabrian roots, he recreates the big family meals of his youth, usually consisting of 8-10 mouthwatering courses.
