Cordon Bleu-trained chef and food blogger is currently dating the One Direction singer
TESS Ward has been building a reputation in the world of food, but the new girlfriend of Harry Styles is about to become much, much more famous.
So what do we know about the queen of the ‘clean living’ diet who’s stolen Harry’s heart, and how did they meet? Read on to find out…
Who is Tess Ward? What’s her background?
Tess Matilda Ward was born in London in March 1990, and is the only daughter of Kit (Christopher) and Kate, a yoga teacher.
She has a younger brother named Dashiell (Dash) Ward, who’s 22 and at Uni.
Tess grew up with her family near Oxford, but studied History of Art at the University of Leeds.
It’s here that she developed a taste for cooking, citing a “big kitchen, lots of hungry friends and a strict budget” as the catalysts.
At the age of 18 she spent a month travelling in India, but picked up a parasite which caused her to rethink her diet and approach to eating. She was eventually cured by a clinical nutritionist.
After graduating, Tess enrolled at Le Cordon Blue where she received professional chef training. She also spent spells working at River Cottage and The Ritz.
What is Tess Ward best known for?
Tess has been dubbed “cooking’s new golden girl” by fans.
She’s best-known for her cookbook The Naked Diet (available from Amazon), which she describes as “celebrating unprocessed ‘naked’ ingredients”.
She claims that the diet “takes a stripped back approach to the food that you eat, that will give you more energy, help you lose weight and cleanse your body”.
Tess runs a popular blog The YES Chef, and has written for Fabulous magazine, Grazia Online and others.
The in-demand 27-year-old has worked as a consultant with brands such as Fortnum and Mason, Itsu, Grey Goose and Kallo.
The yoga and kickboxing fan has also done some modelling alongside the likes of former Made in Chelsea stars Millie Mackintosh and Rosie Fortescue, and is currently on the books of the MODELS 1 agency.
How did Tess Ward meet Harry Styles?
According to an exclusive story from Bizarre, Tess was introduced to Harry Styles by mutual friends.
Pals of the singer say he’s really taken by Tess and believe they’re set for a long-term relationship.
A source said: “As soon as Harry met Tess there was an instant spark between them.
“They really bonded over their mutual love of quirky fashion and food – and things turned romantic quickly.
“They’ve been on a number of dates while Harry has been in London and he’s already introduced Tess to some of his close friends including his personal stylist Lou Teasdale.”
Harry went public with his new girlfriend at the weekend as he was pictured driving Tess around north London in his Audi.
