How Much Is Lorraine Pascale's Net Worth?
British television cook Lorraine Pascale has an estimated net worth of $30 million as of 2022.
She is also stated to have an annual salary of around $1.5 to $2 million.
Pascale started her career quite young as she was spotted as a potential model when she was only 16.
This agent was the same one who found the supermodel Naomi Campbell.
She started her modeling career based in New York, and quickly gained recognition as the first model of African descent to appear on the cover of American Elle.
She also appeared in the 1998 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue and was one of the girls featured in Robbie Williams' Millenium video.
However, while riding the high of her modeling career, Pascale also realized that she needed to ensure a future after modeling and embarked on a series of career tryouts.
Some of the more outlandish careers she tried out were hypnotherapy and car mechanics.
She ended up taking a diploma cookery course at Leith's School of Food and Wine in 2005 and found that the vocation fit her quite well.
After she gained the diploma, the model did a series of stages in some London restaurants but soon realized that restaurant hours did not suit her.
As such, Pascale established herself as a specialist cakemaker with a contract with Selfridges.
Famed chef Marco Pierre was the one who introduced her to Selfridges, and in 2008 and 2010 she supplied the London store with over 1000 Christmas cakes.
She opened her cupcake shop in Covent Garden and studied Culinary Arts at Thames Valley University which is now called the University of West London.
She graduated from the university in March 2012 with a first-class degree.
Pascale started her television career in January 2011 when she presented a television bakery program called Baking Made Easy on BBC television.
She also published a bakery book based on this series. Later that year, she released a second series called Home Cooking Made East, which broadcasted in September and October.
This series also had an accompanying book. Another program aired on BBC Two called The Last Minute Christmas on December 22, 2011.
She published the third book in 2012, and based another series on it called Fast, Fresh, & Easy Food, which aired in August and September 2012 on BBC Two.
Pascale's television appearances kept increasing in the mid-2010s as in early 2014, she co-presented and judged the UK version of My Kitchen Rules with Jason Atherton on Sky Living.
April of that year saw an announcement that stated that Pascale would be hosting a new six-part television series called Lorraine Pascale: How to be a Better Cook. This series was set to air later in the year on BBC Two.
The next year, in March 2015, she co-hosted one of The Nation's Favourite Food episodes alongside the Hairy Bikers on BBC Two.
Pascale is also a judge on the Food Network's Holiday Baking Championship and Spring Baking Championship. She is also a mentor on Worst Bakers in America.
Lastly, she was a judge on two episodes of the first season of Bakers vs. Fakers and became the main host for season two.
