George studied Visual and Performing Arts at the University of Brighton. He has since hosted lectures there on his work. He has also lectured Southampton Solent University, ended up teaching the students the more important and valuable life-skill of cooking omelettes.
George has cooked on various tv shows. He did a bit on Great British Bake Off’s spin-off show ‘An Extra Slice’ and that’s available on Channel 4’s website. Find it HERE. He also did a spot on ITV’s ‘This Morning’ which attracted some horrible negative feedback on Twitter, but hey, that’s people. Anyway, make your own mind up when you watch it by clicking HERE. He also presented some cooking videos to promote the BBC Radio 4 ‘Food and Farming Awards’.
His unconventional cooking skills saw George front a three-film campaign for Vauxhall in which he drove around the country cooking for various tradespeople using the tools that they might have on their building sites and in their factories. Another ‘branded content’ presentation saw George fly to Toronto to front a campaign for Dewars Whisky in conjunction with Burns’ Night celebration ‘The Scotch Egg Club’. While in Canada George made various TV and Radio appearances in advance of the evening which he hosted and for which he designed and oversaw the menu using a mixture of traditional Scottish and Canadian ingredients.
