Joaquim Teles, who hails from Portugal, has worked as a pastry chef for over 25 years, honing his skills across the globe.

The 44-year-old owned a shop in Portugal before moving to Norfolk, where he has since been running an independent business, selling sweet treats at markets and shows.

After building a loyal following, Mr Teles has decided to open a shop, where he can expand the range of pastries he offers.

In attempt to make this happen, he has started a crowdfunding campaign to raise £20,000.

Mr Teles said: “My aim is to provide Norfolk with a true French and Portugese patisserie experience using fresh, local products.

“I would like to gather enough to open a small pastry shop and be able to work every day in a place that everybody can visit me.”

He added: “I appreciate any help, donations and sharing of my idea.”
