John Gregory-Smith

John joined us at BBC Good Food Show Winter 2019. Sign up to our newsletter to be the first to know who's coming in 2020.


John Gregory-Smith is a food and travel writer, presenter and chef. He has written four cookbooks; Orange Blossom and Honey, Turkish Delights, Mighty Spice Express and Mighty Spice Cookbook. His fifth book, Saffron In The Souks, is out in May 2019.

John started his career launching a spice brand into Sainsbury’s when he was 24. He then moved into writing and presenting, working on both sides of the Atlantic. Currently he lives in London and travels the world, visiting some of the most far-flung, remote destinations for inspiration. He has a particular interest in North African, Middle Eastern and Eastern Mediterranean foods.

This year, he has written for Grazia, Evening Standard, Attitude Magazine, The Independent, Delicious and Feel Good Food. His recipes have been featured in The Times, The Telegraph, Sainsbury’s Magazine, The Daily Mail, Hello!, GQ, House and Home, Red, The Wall Street Journal and Men’s Health.

John always receives rave reviews for his raucous pop-ups and events, each one themed and inspired by his travels. Make sure you catch him later this year at Berber and Q, Druid Street Market, Soho House or Dock Kitchen.

You can also see John on Sunday Brunch on Channel 4 where he has made several appearances and will be popping back up there again soon!
