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.
I believe that this was Andrew Lawrence-King's first recording (1986) – a sterling effort which is ample proof of why he went on to become a well-established figure in his field. He has appeared on numerous recordings, including many with Jordi Savall's Hesperian XX, and is currently the director of the Harp Consort. The program is both musically interesting and eminently listenable; and given Lawrence-King's credentials (he won an Organ Scholarship to Selwyn College, Cambridge and completed his studies at the London Early Music Centre), his understanding of the material is unquestionably comprehensive. His technical execution is equally impressive.
