He has a unique understanding of where families are going wrong in the kitchen, and how to help. As a former market trader and fresh produce importer, Chris's business, The Naked Grocer, twice won National Independent Retailer of the Year. As well as his busy TV career, Chris runs cookery demonstrations, gives educational talks to children, and always cooks for his family.
