Tom Kerridge has all the ingredients of a national treasure-in-the-making. He is known and loved for his west-country burr and meteoric rise through the culinary world (his gastro pub, The Hand and Flowers, won a Michelin star a year after it opened, and a second star a few years later; it is the only pub to do so).
With growing fame came a corresponding expansion of the waistband, but over the past three years he has lost 11 stone. Popular author and Telegraph food writer Xanthe Clay quizzes him about great food and the tricky subject of dieting.
