Nellie Nichols
Job: Head of Food Development Pret A Manger

On-Duty: Nellie – who learned to cook when catering for her father, after her mother died when she was a child – is the right-hand woman to the sandwich bar chain’s founder Julian Metcalfe. For the past ten years, as Pret has expanded from seven to 70 stores (now going global under its new owner, McDonald’s) she had developed new ideas and fillings, including the best-selling All-Day Breakfast and a new No Mayo range.

Off-Duty: A single mother with a young son living in South London, Nichols cooks in her spare time, too, making all her own jams, marmalades and chutneys. She loves horse riding and water skiing, holidays in Mauritius and shops at Prada and Gucci. She can also be found hunting for antique silverware at car boot sales.

Did You Know: It can take up to three months to perfect a new sandwich recipe.
