His stand-up comedy saw him named in The Times and The Scotsman Best Shows at Edinburgh Fringe in 2019, as well as awarded the Spirit of the Fringe – Edinburgh in 2015 for his ‘Anarchist Cook’ show.
He is the co-writer of the popular blog ‘MEALMEN’ which documents his culinary life and passions, and features opinion pieces, food photographs, and the recipes he invents and cooks for his family.
He studied visual and performing arts at the University of Brighton, and has since hosted lectures there on his work. He has also lectured at Southampton Solent University, where he ended up teaching the students the most important and valuable life-skill: cooking omelettes.

George has cooked on various TV shows, including on Great British Bake Off’s spin-off show An Extra Slice, Steph’s Packed Lunch, and This Morning. He also presented a number of cooking videos to promote the BBC Radio 4 Food and Farming Awards.
His unconventional cooking skills saw him 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 him fly to Toronto to front a campaign for Dewars Whiskey in conjunction with their Burns’ Night celebration ‘The Scotch Egg Club’.
