Review

Hocus Pocus by Focus plays on the soundtrack, which must mean that Si and Dave are on their way to Holland at the start of the Low Countries leg of their yeasty odyssey.

They are a daft pair, going on and on about windmills and later making laborious gags about “Belgian tarts”, but they are endearing. And their open-air cookery sessions attract big, appreciative crowds.

It’s a trip that’s full of eccentrics, from the snaggle-toothed Belgian baker with his suggestive pastries, to the flirty Michelin-starred lady chef who gets her pastry chef to churn out glorious macaroons while she twinkles at our grizzled heroes.

Summary

The second leg of Si King and Dave Myers' journey in search of Europe's finest baking takes them through the Low Countries. The Netherlands' heritage as a spice-trading nation shines through in such dishes as Dutch apple pie smothered in cinnamon, and Jewish buns coated in muscovado sugar. In Belgium, the duo make their own chocolate truffle cheesecake, and get busy again in Luxembourg, cooking a pork pie with Riesling jelly. Along the way they snort chocolate, taste the sweet delights of Bruges and get a recipe for macaroons with ice-cream.
