Growing up in Trimdon Station, Paul trained to be a chef at New College Durham where he fell in love with baking and all things sweet. He has worked in several restaurants including in Whitby, Leeds, and at Marco Pierre White’s and La Rascasse in London.

Paul was a regular chef on Great/Good Food Live with UKTV Food with subsequent appearances on This Morning, Alan Titchmarsh, Sunday Brunch, Saturday Kitchen, The Apprentice, Blue Peter, The Sweet Makers, Snack Masters, and Top Chef US

Paul has four books: Adventures with Chocolate, Sensational Chocolate, How to Make Chocolates and The Joy of Chocolate.

In 2022 Paul launched Chocolate at Home, a one-to-one hands-on masterclass from his home kitchen teaching all the fundamentals of chocolate making.
