Keen followers of my Instagram will know that I am a huge fan of all things car related. So I was so excited when the BBC has asked me to make a show all about cars. Paul Hollywood’s Big Continental Road Trip sees me heading off to Europe to find out all about several country’s character’s and how they are reflected in their attitude to cars and driving. I will be visiting Italy, Germany & France and driving lots of incredible cars, including a £2 million Huayra car in Italy, a classic 2CV in France and a VW Kombi Camper Van in Germany. The show starts on May 28th on BBC2. Keep an eye on my new Twitter account @hollywooddrives for more details.
For those you who aren’t as interested in cars as me, don’t worry I will be back doing what I do best – baking – later this year. A Baker’s Life is a five part series for Channel 4. The show will see me visiting different kitchens and chefs who have guided me over the years. You will get an insight into my personal baking history, as well as feature some fantastic new recipes. The show will be on screens towards the end of the year, as soon as I know more details I will let you know.
And of course before then there’s the new series of The Great British Bake Off. More about that soon!
