Great British Bake Off 2021 contestant, George Aristidou, has teamed up with Lidl GB this Easter to bring you some yummy recipes. Head over the Instagram and watch @george_bake_ari make a super simple Swiss roll using Lidl’s delicious Deluxe Very Berry hot cross buns. Filled with the store’s incredible raspberry conserve, Deluxe Madagascan vanilla custard, double cream and raspberries, you really don’t have to break the bank to make a showstopping Easter treat!
Londoner George grew up in a close-knit Greek-Cypriot family where food was always a big part of family life. Now married to his childhood sweetheart, he has three children and a house full of animals, including a dancing Japanese Spitz, called Eli.
His mum taught him to bake; a legacy he’s now passing on to his own children, and he loves all the Greek classics. His flavours often include home-grown herbs and he likes to give his bakes a touch of class with a shabby-chic, vintage vibe. He has a keen eye for detail, looking for perfection in the finished presentation.
When George isn’t baking, gardening or looking after his miniature zoo, he will be in the great outdoors with his family, on bike rides and walks.
