Paul is excited to visit Paris for the first time, and sees the classic croissant and baguette baked in the city that invented them. He also turns the classic éclair into a 'Choux Eiffel Tower' to create a stunning special occasion bake.
At London's historic Cliveden House Hotel, Paul recreates his idea of heavenly baked perfection, the classic afternoon tea. Paul's scones are light, his sandwiches cut just so, and his beautiful cakes are no bigger than three bites each!
Braving sub-zero temperatures, Paul is in St Petersburg, sampling layered honey cake, and vatrushka, a delicate curd tart. Yet it's the Russian pies, with intricate pastry patterns covering sweet and savoury fillings, that steal his heart.
Paul is in Naples, the home of pizza! He also discovers the Neapolitan rum baba, a light yeasted bun in rum syrup, and the multi-layered sfogliatella filled with fruit and cream. Later he bakes a classic dark chocolate Caprese cake.
In Copenhagen, Paul meets Mette Blomsterberg, a local baker and celebrity. She teaches him how to make kranskake, a tower of delicious almond cookies, that's easy to make, yet impressive enough as a centrepiece for any special occasion.
