Age: 39

Born and bred in North London, Enwezor is half Nigerian and half Japanese and now lives with his wife and four children in Portsmouth where he works as a business consultant. When Enwezor sets his mind to something he will commit himself entirely – he once decided to do The Great South Run barefoot and so spent eight months walking around Portsmouth barefoot to get his feet ready for the race.

Enwezor grew up in a family that liked to cook. He has taught himself to bake in the last three years and it rapidly become one of his greatest passions, even doing night shift with a professional baker making over 900 loaves of bread, just for the work experience.  Enwezor regards baking as an inclusive and fun activity that he likes to do with his children, giving them a bowl of flour and letting them mix it on the floor whilst he bakes and enjoys their company. Although he started off with bread, pastry is now his favourite thing to work with. Not wanting to run out of staple ingredients, Enwezor has been known to stock up his fridge with eight packs of butter at a time. He thinks baking in this way brings together the community.
