About Ian

Hailing from Leicester, Ian Bursnall – aka The Skint Roofer – competed in Jamie Oliver’s ‘Great Cookbook Challenge’ in 2022, where he won the judges over with his inventive twists on crowd-pleasing, budget-friendly recipes for all the family, such as ‘Pimped-up pigs in Blankets’ and ‘Donna’s Spuds: Roasties with Stilton’. Ever since his mum taught him to cook at 16, Ian’s passion has been to make cooking accessible, helping and encouraging people to understand flavours and feel confident in the kitchen.

Ian was the first runner up and his debut cookbook will be published by HarperCollins in 2023, featuring the style of cooking that has won him a legion of fans: simple, delicious food that doesn’t cost the earth.
