Steven lamb is a curing & smoking expert, teacher, presenter, culinary consultant and award-winning author.
After a background in media, Steven’s food career began nearly 20 years ago when he joined Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s River Cottage team, regularly appearing in the tv series and being instrumental in establishing the internationally acclaimed cookery school on the devon / dorset border.
Beyond River Cottage, Steven’s extensive food knowledge and talent for live hosting has put him at the centre of many of the best food shows and festivals, either leading his own cookery demonstration or compering the live stage for emerging and celebrity chefs. More recently Steve has become the host presenter for Grand Designs Live Show in London and Birmingham as well as Chef Mark Hix’s Food Rocks. In 2016 he hosted the Guardian Literary Institute at Camp Bestival in his home county of Dorset.
Steven is the author of two books, the award winning bestseller River Cottage: Curing & Smoking and more recently River Cottage: Cheese & Dairy. He was a contributor to the River Cottage A-Z of Ingredients Bible and also writes for a number of different publications for print and online.
Always keen to share his knowledge, Steven regularly teaches at other UK and International cookery schools, and also uses his experience to consult on food projects for individuals and large organisations. We are really excited that Steve will be teaching a variety of courses here at Vale House Kitchen.
