Originally from Australia, Danny McCubbin had a successful seventeen-year career in London with chef and campaigner Jamie Oliver. He has spent years promoting food-focused social enterprises and helping diverse businesses create social value, with the belief that food has the power to transform lives. During the pandemic in 2020, Danny set up two community kitchens in London. Mobilising his extensive network of chefs and home cooks, Danny provided cooked meals for thousands of vulnerable people who faced food insecurity. His latest project, The Good Kitchen, also provides meals for many people by utilising surplus food and tapping into a strong Sicilian culture of preservation, generosity, and community. 

Danny is the author of The Good Kitchen: Love and Connection Through Food
