20-year-old Sam Stern is studying Politics, Sociology and Business at Edinburgh University. He is also the author of 5 bestselling cookbooks which currently dominate the teenage market, and has been cooking for as long as he can remember.
What started as a personal passion for cooking (and fierce kitchen competition with his older brother) turned into a mission to inspire his generation to cook.
One of Sam's books, Cooking up a Storm, has been translated into 14 languages, with worldwide sales nudging 700,000 copies.
The books and associated activity have attracted global media attention and have given Sam a unique status as the voice for aspiring young cooks.
