About the Show

Two brothers - one a baker, the other a chef and butcher - unlock the trade secrets of baking, and without a cupcake in sight

Series 1 Summary

The Fabulous Baker Brothers stars brothers Tom, a baker, and Henry, a chef who runs the local butcher's shop next door. With five generations of baking tradition behind them, Tom and Henry take viewers into the heat of the artisan kitchen and unlock the trade secrets of baking, which have been honed through years of practice and passion.

The series is packed with hearty recipes and interesting twists as each episode the boys roll up their sleeves and take viewers through their delicious recipes. But it's not just about bread and pastry, as each dish has hearty fillings, tempting toppings and tasty accompaniments that bring in stacks of delicious flavours.

  • Episode 1

    Tom demonstrates how to make the perfect white loaf, which also makes the perfect chip butty.

    The brothers reveal the method behind their epic steak sandwich topped with wild mushrooms and crispy salad.

    They also showcase their unique creation - chocolate 'sticky stick' donuts.

    And for the weekly pie-making competition, the brothers go head-to-head in a battle to win over this week's judges - a group of hungry farmers. Henry chooses to make a meaty rabbit pie and Tom a hearty ploughman's lunch-inspired pasty. But which brother comes out on top?

  • Episode 2

    Tom and Henry bake soda bread and home-made butter in 30 minutes and a pie for fire fighters to eat on the go.

    This time the brothers are taking on recipes that are fast and furious and get into a race to make the speediest snack - pizza vs toastie, the ultimate bloke's battle.

    And want a curry in a hurry? Well, Henry's got a blinder, topped off with Tom's super-quick chapatis.

  • Episode 3

    The brothers cook up the food of love, including a romantic breakfast in bed, some melt-in-the-middle chocolate pots, and a slow cooked cassoulet with duck and sausages. They also make sweet pies in their ongoing pie war.

  • Episode 4

    The boys focus on slow food, pulled pork, sourdough loaf, and steamed pudding soaked in flaming booze and covered with toffee sauce.

    Tom and Henry also make some big, savoury pies for seven triathletes in need of fuel for their lengthy training regimes.

  • Episode 5

    Tom and Henry lay on some budget-busting, cheap and cheerful food that doesn't scrimp on flavour, including mini burger sliders, pimped-up toast and low-cost pies.

  • Episode 6

    It's the final week, and Tom and Henry make beef Wellington, lardy cake and smoked hot-dogs. And who will be be crowned Pie War champion?
