In Paul Hollywood City Bakes, we're treated to a slice of cake everywhere from Los Angeles, through to Jerusalem, and over to Dublin.

Paul Hollywood has toured the world, cake by cake. Season 2 of Paul Hollywood City Bakes begins in Palermo in Sicily, where Paul visits some of the great traditional baking meccas of the world and shows us how to make native specialties—or his own modern twist on the original.
