Henry Dimbleby is the son of the broadcaster and journalist David Dimbleby and his cookery writer wife, Josceline Dimbleby. He was educated at Eton, where he was a Newcastle scholar and a contemporary of Tory MP Jacob Rees-Mogg, and at Oxford University where he read Physics and Philosophy.
He worked for management consultants Bain & Co with his childhood friend John Vincent, and it was there they came up with the idea for Leon.
Leon was co-founded by John Vincent and Henry Dimbleby with chef Allegra McEvedy.
Dimbleby is a regular cookery columnist for The Guardian.
Dimbleby is married to Mima, and they have three children, as of 2012.
