Gregg Wallace

Celebrity Chef

Gregg Wallace is a successful vegetable grower who supplies many large restaurants in London with fresh produce from his farm.

Born in Peckham, he started out as a London market trader on a vegetable stand in Covent Garden's vegetable market.

In 1989 he started George Allan’s Greengrocers - a company that built up to an eventual turnover of £7.5 million and, as a result of his knowledge of the fruit and veg industry, he was invited to be on Radio 4 in 1997. He now runs his company from Secrets Farm and, seven years later, the much-loved Radio 4 programme Veg Talk is still running.

In 2002 Gregg presented Saturday Kitchen and is presently writing a monthly column for Good Food and Olive magazine, as well as running a direct mail-order service from his farm. He is a keen food historian - and he also loves "snogging and pasta"!
