Luis Troyano, a trained graphic designer, beekeeper and baking obsessive, was a finalist on series 5 of ‘The Great British Bake Off’. He became known for his ‘ingenious designs’ and achieved ‘some of the most stunning bakes to ever grace the bake off tent’. Brought up in Spanish household meant food has always played an important part in his life; giving him a passion for experimenting with new flavours and ingredients. As a self-taught cook, Luis has an extensive knowledge of many food styles and disciplines, not just baking and is blown away by how many things can be made from just four basic base ingredients; flour, eggs, sugar and butter. Luis lives in Stockport, Cheshire.
