Harriet Mansell has a pop-up restaurant, Robin Wylde, in Lyme Regis and this is her first time in the Great British Menu kitchen.

She grew up in Sidmouth, Devon and took an unconventional route into the industry. After studying Politics and History at university, she retrained to be a chef.

She took her first 'proper' kitchen job with fellow south west chef Mark Hix in London before going to culinary school and went on to stage at the prestigious Noma in Denmark, followed by a couple of Michelin kitchens in London and then into the super yacht industry where she worked as a private chef for high profile clients.
