Bryn Williams

Bryn Williams hails from Denbigh, North Wales where he learnt to appreciate food and its origins from an early age. He grew up shooting and fishing with his father and uncle and worked in his local bakery learning the trade. Bryn began his career working under Marco Pierre White at The Criterion; he then worked under Michel Roux Jr. at Le Gavroche and was senior-sous at the Orrery before moving to open Galvin at Windows with Chris Galvin. In 2006 he opened Odette's, a neighbourhood favourite in London's Primrose Hill. He is now the Chef Patron there, having taken over the property in 2008 and recently opened Bryn Williams at Porth Eirias, a beach-front restaurant, café and bar on the North Wales coast.

A familiar face on TV, Bryn is best known from Great British Menu, in which he featured in 2006. He won the fish course and cooked it for the Queen for her 80th birthday banquet. Since then, Bryn has been a regular demand for Saturday Kitchen and continues to appear on Great British Menu, as well as numerous BBC Wales productions in his native language.
