The Sweet Mak­ers: A Tu­dor Treat

doc­u­men­tary / 8.00pm / BBC2

TV Times - - Wednesday Highlights -

fol­low­ing on from last year’s Vic­to­rian Bak­ers, it’s the turn of four mod­ern-day con­fec­tion­ers to step back in time and get hands-on ex­pe­ri­ence of their craft in three dif­fer­ent eras. Like its pre­de­ces­sor, it’s a fun and in­for­ma­tive watch, but it def­i­nitely won’t leave you sali­vat­ing over the sweet treats. Be­gin­ning tonight in Tu­dor times, the con­fec­tion­ers must pre­pare an ‘aris­to­cratic sugar ban­quet’ where many of the de­lights on of­fer had a hid­den bonus – co­rian­der com­fits helped to ease di­ges­tion, can­died eryngo boosted li­bido and crys­tallised roses were a cure for gon­or­rhoea! Think we’ll stick to Ro­los, thanks!

The Baldrick looka­like com­pe­ti­tion was go­ing well
