Originally trained as a sculptor, Great Food Live regular Paul Hollywood decided instead to turn his talented hand to the art of bread-making.
His passion for pastry led him into a career as Head Baker at various prestigious hotels, including The Dorchester Hotel, the Chester Grosvenor Hotel and the Cliveden Hotel in Berkshire. He also spent six years in Cyprus at the Annabelle and Annassa resorts.
As well as making various series for Carlton Food Network (Taste TV), Paul has appeared on Ready Steady Cook, The Generation Game and The Heaven and Earth Show for the BBC. He has also regularly appeared on ITV’s This Morning.
Paul Hollywood’s Bread Academy recently relocated from Canterbury to southeast Kent and weekend courses run from spring 2005.
Paul also has a line of his own breads, made by a skilled workforce in a large factory in Kettering. Catch him regularly on Great Food Live and Great Food Bites.
