In these times of austerity, what could be more comforting than a bit of home baking? And what more enjoyable way to expand your horizons beyond brown bread and sponge cake than on a spectacular road trip across Europe with Si and Dave? This series sees the hairy duo ride over 3,000 kilometres from Scandinavia to Spain – taking in Norway, Holland, Belgium and Luxemburg, Germany, Slovakia, Hungary, and Romania, as well as Austria, Italy and France – to seek out the very best baking that the continent has to offer, from simple peasant breads to complex confections made by the finest patissiers. Along the way they meet a range of characters from amateur cooks to professional bakers, and share the intimate secrets of family recipes that have been passed from generation to generation.
