Jonny Marsh is a Michelin-star trained chef who caters for premier league footballers offering his very own tailor-made sports nutrition service. He understands the individual nutritional needs of each footballer and provides meals accordingly, ensuring they get the very best to fuel them throughout their hectic schedules.
Jonny – known as ‘The Football Feeder’ – currently cooks for some of Manchester City’s top players including Kevin De Bruyne, Kyle Walker and Ilkay Gundogen. He’ll often cook for the footballers in their own kitchens, providing a bespoke service which even sees him eating with the footballers on occasion.
As a young chef, Jonny trained at Le Manoir aux Quat Saisons in Oxford under the world-renowned Raymond Blanc as his mentor. Jonny was not only the youngest ever chef to be offered the prestigious position but was also the first to be accepted without having to go through the rigorous application process.
Since being mentored by Raymond Blanc, Jonny has worked alongside some of the top chefs in the world, including Michael Caines, among many others.
While working at Le Manoir and beyond, Jonny has cooked for an impressive roster, including Royalty, celebrities and major sporting stars including many footballers. Between May and September 2015, Jonny was head chef on a private super yacht providing fine dining on a daily basis. Over the 2018 World Cup, Jonny cooked alongside Gary Neville for Sky Bet and has also done filming with One Football and Goal.com.
Since returning to the UK, Jonny has become a pioneer within Sports Nutrition in which he offers to maximize sporting potential with tailored nutritional plans according to each sports person’s needs, hoping to improve their performance on the pitch and recovery when they are at home.
Jonny has garnered over a quarter of a million followers across his social media platforms, including TikTok, Instagram and Twitter. He is constantly creating content that engages his followers in an accessible way, translating his Michelin Star skills for people at home. Naturally, this has attracted high-profile brands like Panasonic, to utilise his respected yet relatable platform to reach thousands of users that aspire to re-create dishes just like Jonny's.
