Jack Stein

Born in Cornwall, Jack is the middle son of Rick and Jill Stein. His love for the hospitality world, in particular the kitchen and food-side of things, was apparent from a young age. He kicked off his career working as a kitchen porter during the school holidays, and at 16 tried his hand at front of house, working as a waiter throughout the remainder of his professional education. He studied at Cardiff University, completing a BSC in Psychology before going on to do a Masters in Ancient History. However, his heart was set on cooking, and he re-entered the family business as a Commis Chef at The Seafood Restaurant upon graduating, before becoming Sous Chef at Rick Stein’s Café.

Jack has since worked as a chef at restaurants across the world, including La Régalade in Paris, before extensive travels to Australia, the Far East and Japan, via a stint in the kitchen at Tetsuya’s, Sydney.

Jack has been Chef Director of all of our restaurants since 2017 and under his leadership, the business has undergone much change including the launch of Jack’s own cookery courses at the Rick Stein’s Cookery School.

Jack is a familiar face on television, has filmed series’ including Wine, Dine and Stein (co-hosted with brother Charlie), Jack Stein: Born to Cook on SBS and UKTV food, and Inside the Box. He is also the author of cookbook, World on a Plate released by Bloomsbury Cooks and Absolute Press.
