The Fabulous Baker Brothers

The Fabulous Baker Brothers

Series 2 - Episode 1



Excitable West Country lads, baker and butcher Tom and Henry, leave their Gloucestershire home to travel that well-worn TV chefs’ route, where they hop into a quirky car – a Morris Minor van – to travel the country helping struggling businesses.

The boys arrive at the Mermaid Café in Blackpool, which is feeling the pinch. Owners Len and Babs think they need to offer something more than their gigantic breakfasts, but Babs isn’t keen on Tom and Henry’s poppy-seed breakfast baps: “The seeds are not a northern thing,” she sniffs.


Chef Henry Herbert and his baker brother Tom hit the road, heading to Blackpool, where they help Len and Babs Curtis modernise the Mermaid Cafe. They also create a new item for the menu by putting three dishes to the public for a taste test.
