Nigel Barden

Nigel Barden is a much-loved food and drink broadcaster who works on both television and radio. He is the main food correspondent for BBC London where he has worked with Simon Mayo and Chris Evans. 

Nigel specialises in promoting British ingredients and artisan food and drink producers, particularly through his roles on the judging panels for The Great Taste Awards, Farm Shop & Deli Awards, World Cheese Awards, and the British Cookery School Awards. As well as judging, he has hosted similar events such as the National Fish & Chip Awards and Delicious Yorkshire.

Nigel’s mantra is about good taste, provenance, and craftsmanship. Not a chef, but a down-to-earth cook and pundit, with an eye on seasonality and quality ingredients, Nigel is passionate about what people want to put on their tables and in their bellies. 

He brings experience, fun, banter, and impartial recommendations of the best food and drink happenings in the United Kingdom and beyond.

He is a well-esteemed television and radio presenter, as well as an in-demand award host, conference presenter, after-dinner speaker, voice-over artist, and narrator.
