They first met on Celebrity Masterchef, and are both known for their amazing cooking skills – but does John Torode and Lisa Faulkner's London home have all the ingredients that make up a stylish abode? This time around John, we'll be the judge!
There's one obvious place to start...

Chef John is known for his love of Asian food, and judging by the ingredients on show here, he's making a Thai-style salad. But we're finding the blue-painted units, matching Stoves range cooker and Lisa's collection of vintage teapots just as mouthwatering.
Check out their matching Instagram accounts @lisafaulknercooks and @johntorodecooks, and you'll soon notice that this table is the central focus of their home, whatever the time of year. It's often adorned with mismatched crockery – this traditional blue-and-white design is a particular favourite.
Bi-fold doors lead out from the sitting room to the garden, where we're sure Aussie John loves to throw a barbie! But not today. He's more interested in a game of scrabble.

Just outside the window is a charming spot, where Lisa often enjoys breakfast. We wonder if those croissants are homemade? It's nice to see her keeping it real with some shop-bought spread, anyhow.
It seems like cooking isn't all John's good at. Could we be looking at the next Alan Titchmarch?
Back inside now, and let's just admire Lisa's new sofa for a minute. We love the colour combo of navy and coral.
Looks like miniature schnauzers Otto and Rory will have to make do with a seat on the Kilim-style rug.
Those flowers are gorgeous, as is the period marble fireplace with beautiful inset tiles.
One exception is the bathroom, which features pattern aplenty courtesy of wall-to-wall moorish tiles. Its centrepiece is this deep roll-top bath, where Lisa and John can relax after a long day slaving over a hot stove.
Looks like these two have Mastered their interiors!
