Martyn has been a chef for over fifteen years working in a lot of different areas in the food industry from restaurants to large scale event catering. He found his way into recipe development for Joe Wicks (The Body Coach) and worked in a cookery school teaching for over five years, alongside doing a degree in photography.
After setting up Lagom Chef in November 2019 as an online sustainable meal plan company fighting food waste, things didn’t work out quite as planned (pandemic!), he shifted his focus on educating people about food waste and having fun with cooking. He now has an audience of over 1 million across platforms, gaining traction through his energetic fun content that aims to teach, inspire and break down the barriers that assume solving food waste and eating delicious food is complicated and expensive.
A self-titled “Food Waste Disruptor” who is raising awareness to a whole new audience and demographic, carving out his niche in the food waste scene. From having success with his light hearted approach he has worked with brands such as Canon, Sainsburys, Ocado, Sony Music, TikTok, WRAP and Oddbox on major brand campaigns.
Having appeared on Jamie Oliver Cookbook show, he has now made guest appearances on Sunday Brunch and Steph’s Packed Lunch and numerous Podcasts, bringing his energy and joy to the nation.
