Jane Devonshire

Jane Devonshire at the BBC Good Food Show Winter - see her cooking live in the Big Kitchen and in interviews around the Shows.


Jane Devonshire was crowned MasterChef 2016 Champion in the twelfth series of the hugely popular BBC One series.

Mother of four, Jane 50, battled her way through an incredible seven weeks of seriously intense challenges including: cooking with rising British star, chef Michael O'Hare; travelling to Mexico to cook with Enrique Olvera; cooking for Daniel Humm one of the world's most influential culinary talents, and an extraordinary final cook-off where she wowed judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace with her childhood-inspired menu which consisted of a Winkle starter, Indian-inspired Sunday Roast Lamb, and Rhubarb and Custard dessert.

Stay-at-home mum Jane's passion for cooking started when she young and was central to her upbringing. She came from a family of cooks with her nanny Pearce inspiring her with her beautiful cakes and dishes, while her mother is a fabulous cook of really traditional food and her dad, who always worked in food sales, would bring home different and interesting foods.

Cooking for her family is an absolutely solid and integral part to Jane's life and she loves creating recipes for her family and friends. It was her youngest son, Ben, who encouraged her to enter the competition.

Jane loves working in food and now develops recipes and creates menus for corporate clients. Jane regularly demonstrates at cookery shows around the country and abroad including Good Food Show. Her first book, Hassle Free Gluten Free was published in 2018. Her second, Vegetarian Hassle Free Gluten Free was published in 2020.

Jane was born and grew up in London. She now lives in Hampshire with her husband Mark and her four children, Sam, Rebecca, Harry and Ben.
