From a very young age, Steven would stand with his Mum in the kitchen, watching and mastering everything she was doing. His own skills in the kitchen developed over the years, but the most important lesson his Mum taught him was to relax and enjoy preparing food, whether it was for a family party or just Wednesday night dinner.
After years of working in corporate marketing, Steven finally plucked up the courage to enter Channel 4’s eighth series of The Great British Bake Off. With a dream to just make it through the first week he finished as runner-up in the final, collecting three Star Bakers (and several Hollywood Handshakes) along the way. From his infamous loaf-shaped cake to an intricate bread handbag and a show-stopping chess set made of biscuit; Steven would always challenge himself on both style and substance.
Steven has taken his experience in the tent and skill and put it to good use. He regularly appears at food festivals across the country, with live demonstrations alongside his favourite celebrity chefs, as well as teaching at the prestigious Leith’s School of Food and Wine.
With a steady stream of corporate clients including John Paul Mitchell Systems, Rubik’s, BBC, Disney and Magimix as well as celebrity cakes for Sir Ian McKellen, Jonathan Van Ness, Jade Thirlwall and Nicola Coughlan; baking remains very much in the forefront.
Steven has also presented his own radio show and already features in the 4 Calling Birds podcast. In television he has baked alongside Anton Du Beke, appeared on ITV London News as a special reporter, exploring London’s vibrant and diverse bakeries, and went back into the tent in 2019 to win the Great New Year’s Bake Off.
