Antonia Lloyd is a BAFTA winning TV Series Producer and Development Exec currently working on Great British Menu as series editor.
Antonia has worked with many of the UK’s top chefs over the last decade.

She series produced the first Professional MasterChef when Monica Galetti first came on board as a judge. Antonia is now series editor for Great British Menu 2020, where the chefs will be challenged to cook a series of dishes inspired by children’s literature.
Antonia has a great ability to forge strong relationships with existing and new talent and experience in creating a happy team that will put in the effort and passion required to make great food television.
Antonia told us: “The best presenters are people who are already in love with what they do. They don’t change for the camera – they just learn how to do it on camera.”
She is always on the hunt for new TV talents that could launch the next big food format. Antonia is passionate about inspiring the next generation to learn from Britain’s talented chefs and at home she is an avid baker and recipe enthusiast.
Antonia will be joining us in our Recognising and Rewarding Success panel on 1st March 2020 to help uncover what recognition in the hospitality industry means (whether it is being on TV or getting press) what TV producers are looking for and how being on TV is one of the ways of boosting your industry profile.
