Paul has been a chef and baker for over 18 years. In 2004, along with hospitality veteran, pastry chef and baker David McGuinness, he established the successful Bourke Street Bakery.
Paul was inspired to set up The Bread & Butter Project following a trip with his wife, Jessica Grynberg, to Mae Sot on the Thai-Burmese border, where at the invitation of a local orphanage Paul taught a group of Karen refugee women how to bake bread and helped establish a social business to support these women and the orphanage.
On returning home, Paul along with his business partner and friend, David McGuinness, decided to use their baking skills and community spirit to set up a social enterprise bakery to empower the disadvantaged in Sydney. Their vision was that Bourke Street Bakery would gift its time, baking and hospitality expertise to establish a wholesale bakery where 100% of the profits would go towards training and employment opportunities for communities in need. Paul, along with the rest of the board is working on a volunteer basis.
