Winner 2020

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet

The Essex born chef started out washing pots at his local restaurant at just 14 years of age and went on to become a critically acclaimed chef by the age of 25. He studied at Westminster Kingsway College in London and graduated as its Apprentice Chef of the Year. He has developed a love for both British produce and cuisine, and has quickly become acknowledged for his unique presentation and creative flair.

He started his cooking career as an apprentice at London's Savoy, going on to train at Michelin-starred Hélène Darroze. He then honed his skills at Dinner by Heston at the Mandarin Oriental, Roux at Parliament Square, The Frog in Hoxton and more recently, working in Masterchef judge Monica Galetti’s kitchen at Mere.
Alex’s signature dishes include Devon crab and duck Scotch eggs, confit cod sandwiches and a ‘show stopping’ dessert known as Party Popper English Strawberries, complete with edible strawberry dust.

He won MasterChef the Professionals in 2020, as the second youngest winner ever, whilst he was head chef at Square 1 in Great Dunmow, Essex. Chef Alex Webb has completed a three-month residency at Number One Park Lane restaurant at The InterContinental Park Lane. The pop-up was billed as a menu of "English-inspired sharing plates". Situated on the al fresco terrace, the pop-up had a relaxed and fun vibe, overlooking London’s Royal parks, Buckingham Palace and the Wellington Arch.

Alex worked with some of Britain’s top producers to create a genuinely British menu, with some of the surprises and fun twists he showcased during his time on MasterChef: The Professionals. The sharing style menu included savoury bites, larger dishes and signature, fun desserts as well as the option to add British caviar and seasonal truffle to most every dish.

Since becoming the 2020 winner of Masterchef, Alex has developed exclusive menus, with British produce at the forefront, for many private dinners in various places including the privately owned Mauritius hotel.
Alex teamed up with Disney to launch ’Star’, their new entertainment brand creating a culinary tasting experience with a multi-course menu.

He has also been doing guest chef nights at Sussex in Soho with the Gladwin brothers, and cooking with his fellow contestants Bart Van der Lee, Santosh Shah, and Philli Armitage-Mattin at a Nomadic pop-up.

When asked about hopes for his own restaurant, Chef Alex Webb said he would love to become Michelin Starred however, he’s clear that he doesn’t want to open a traditional fine dining venue; he thinks of party poppers and fun and wants that aspect of dining in his restaurant.

“Sometimes restaurants can be quite stuffy and mine will be more of an experience, fun, like going to the theatre”. This is based around his mantra of “food should be an experience”.

You can catch up with Alex as he will be providing food demonstrations at Foodie Festivals in various locations around the UK. He is mapping out the contents of a biographical recipe book where he hopes to share the lessons and experiences that have added to his success.
