Doug McMaster        

Michelin Starred Chef, Author & Presenter; Creator of Zero Waste Cooking School

Douglas McMaster is a chef and owner of Silo London.

At a young age, McMaster was awarded ‘Britain’s Best Young Chef’ by the BBC. Some years later he was awarded Britain’s most Innovative chef by the ‘Young British Foodies’ (YBFs). More recently McMaster was recognised by ‘The World’s 50 Best Restaurants’ as one of the ‘young people shaping the future of gastronomy’.

Before opening Silo, McMaster worked at some of the world’s best restaurants including St. John, The Fat Duck and Noma. In 2012, McMaster worked under the legendary artist and Zero Waste visionary Joost Bakker, who challenged McMaster to not have a bin. He then went on to present a TEDTalk titled "Waste Is A Failure Of The Imagination" and has become a public speaker on the future of food.

In 2014, McMaster opened Silo — the first Zero Waste restaurant described as a "pre-industrial food system." Silo has won awards for Britain’s Most Ethical Restaurant, and Britain’s Most Innovated Restaurant at the Craft Guild of Chefs Awards.

McMaster is also a regular lecturer and faculty member for the MAD Academy, where he inspires the next generation of leaders to think differently about food systems, waste, and the industry at large.
