Like the man himself, it's quirky and sometimes genuinely moving - especially his somewhat chaotic childhood.

Probably for Masterchef aficionados only (which I am).

Couldn't put this book down.........
A truly marvelous autobiography written as he speaks, Gregg took me through his life with love and humility.
Its an honest account, warts and all of a man driven to suceed and to provide for his family.
He proves that grafting never hurt anyone and that grandparents are the foundations of family......he loves his very much.
He seems a tidy chap,good luck to him!

I've always loved an autobiography, but seldom does a person jump quite so quickly, easily and vividly as Gregg Wallace. With an honest and open approach, funny observations and detailed descriptions, it was total joy to read

Life on a Plate was written a few years ago, but I've only just read it and finished it a couple of weeks ago. I've enjoyed it very much. Gregg is not the world's best writer, but he does tell a cracking tale, with humour and honesty. He's not always been the good guy, he hasn't always treated the women in his life very well, and he's found himself up in front of the judge before, but he doesn't try to hide this, or make excuses for it, he's upfront and truthful, and very very interesting.

I grew up at the same time as Gregg, we are almost the same age and one of the joys in reading Life on a Plate is his memories of the food of the 70s. I too adore butterscotch Angel Delight, and although I do enjoy fine food, like Gregg, I am more than happy to tuck into a good plate of egg and chips or a greasy spoon special bacon butty.

It was fascinating to read about Gregg's rise in the world of greengrocery. He didn't get it right the first time, but he's a hard worker who has learnt many lessons from some huge mistakes, and has shown determination and grit throughout his life.

Life on a Plate is a really interesting read, love him or hate him, you cannot fail to be impressed by his rise from humble Peckham beginnings to the top of his game. I'd really love to read about the years that follow on from the end of this book, and if he does decide to write the next installment, I will be sure to buy i

Gregg Wallace is a greengrocer who has done very well for himself. That's what this book is about, and if you like the idea of reading about that then this book is for you . The best part are the photos, which show that Gregg is the real life Benjamin Button, the only man to look younger now than he did in 1982

I really enjoyed this book, never have been a great fan of Gregg Wallace, but this book was a real opener from humble beginnings in Peckham to what he is now. He writes with enthusiasm and honesty, and he does seem to learn from his mistakes, which he himself admits to. He has had a very chequered employment and personal life, with very strong highs and lows.
Gregg writes in a very readable manner, and from being somewhat sceptical about reading this book, I ended up by really enjoying this book, and strongly recommending to others, you do not have to be passionate about food and restaurants.
