Peter Sidwell, Chef

"Womersley products are fantastic, very pure; they deliver a wonderful opportunity to bring balance to a dish.

They deliver a clear fresh and incredible flavour, great cooking starts with great ingredients and that's why I buy Womersley." 

Peter Sidwell

Peter lives and works in the beautiful Lake District. He enjoys rewriting the rule book for local produce, reinventing British recipes that are centred around a fantastic ingredient.

Peter’s enthusiasm and passion for simply good food is demonstrated in his TV work, restaurant, cookery school, recipes apps, books and magazine features.

You may have seen Peter on TV as one of the judges on ITV’s hit series Britain’s Best Bakery and was also the chef presenter of his own successful cookery show "Lakes on a Plate" on Channel 4. Peter is right in the mix of British food as he continues to push the boundaries of cooking and baking.

He is constantly coming up with fantastic flavour combinations that have not been seen before, including with Womersley vinegars which have become a firm favourite with Peter and the Simply Good Food TV Chefs.


“We use Womersley’s exceptional strawberry and mint vinegar in our strawberry souffle. It adds the perfect balance of acidity to the dish, enhancing the sweetness of the strawberries. It’s wonderful to have such a fantastic ingredient produced so locally.”
