Eat preserved fruit and vegetables to tackle food shortages, says Gregg Wallace

MasterChef presenter Gregg Wallace urged the public to use tinned or frozen vegetables to combat food shortages after collecting an MBE at a ceremony at Windsor Castle.

The 58-year-old broadcaster, who fronts the popular cooking show and its spin-offs alongside John Torode, has been recognised for services to food and charity.

“I think we need to have a good look again at preserved food,” Wallace said.

“Frozen fruit and vegetables, tinned fruit and vegetables, dried fruit and vegetables. They’re not secondary items, they’re just different items.”
