For Will Torrent, chocolate and all things sweet is in the blood. Growing up around baking, cooking and cake-making, as well as having a chef for a grandfather, meant it was a natural choice for him to go into the world of food and specialise in patisserie.

At 16 his first experience of high-class cooking was working at the world-renowned Fat Duck restaurant with Heston Blumenthal and then later, working with some of England's top chefs including Brian Turner, William Curley, and then going onto work in Claridges, The Dorchester, The Lanesborough and The Fat Duck.

Will has already been Young Chef of the Year, won the Academy of Culinary Arts Awards of Excellence, gold at Salon Culinaire, the Craft Guild of Chefs Young Chef of the Year and took home the Acorn Scholar.
