Have you met Ed McLachlan? He’s the mastermind behind YAMZA! and a certified Master Chef of GB.

Ed actually became a Master Chef back in 2011, when he was just 24 – making him the youngest in the world!

Since then, he’s headed up top restaurants, taken to the high seas on some superyachts (snatching MYBA Yacht Chef of the Year along the way), led a series of spectacular Embassy Gala dinners and developed original menus with 15 multi-Michelin star chefs.

Endlessly passionate about learning new techniques, Ed embarked on a “food world tour” (sounds tasty, no?) which led him to become exec chef for the royal family of Abu Dhabi.

It was in the royal kitchen that Ed first hit upon the idea for YAMZA! Innovating beautiful Middle Eastern flavours with bold new ingredients and techniques he’d learned from around the globe, Ed created a Full-On Eastern Fusion that he couldn’t wait to share with the rest of the world.

Ed’s passion for flavour (and chilies) is every bit as “full-on” as that Eastern fusion, so he’s continuing to cook up some incredible new products in the YAMZA! kitchen as we speak. He’s also come up with some incredible Eastern fusion recipes, perfectly complimented by our range of YAMZA! hot sauces - check them out now.
