Richard Fox is a TV chef and beer expert personality, and active supporter of the WRAP- backed 'Love Food Hate Waste' campaign. He is the author of The Food and Beer Cookbook, which was published in 2006 and was winner of The British Guild of Beer Writers awards for Food and Beer writing. He has had his own cooking slot on BBC1 Regional Look North and was a regular chef on BBC 2's Food Poker. He is a regular on The Food Channel's Market Kitchen, and launched the Love Food Hate Waste concept on this channel. Richard's expertise in the world of food and drink has made him a favourite personality for hosting gourmet events for Harvey Nichols and Fuller's brewery, as well as at the British Ambassador's residence in Paris in support of British export. He has spoken and demonstrated at The National Chef's Conference as well as at numerous corporate and private events around the world. He has appeared on UKTV Food, Saturday Cooks on ITV and The Good Food Show on BBC Radio 4, to name but a few. Richard tours the UK performing cooking demonstrations on the subject of food waste and cooking with leftovers and everyday ingredients: armed with nothing more than a set of knives, a box of everyday cupboard ingredients and the contents of an everyman's fridge, he shows people how to convert past-it-looking produce into gastronomic masterpieces. His book How to be an Everyday Kitchen Magician is due out in 2012.
