Outcry over Belgian TV cookery show that teaches viewers how to cook Hitler's favourite meals

Breaking News

A TV show re-creating Adolf Hitler's favourite meal has come under fire from Jewish and political prisoner organisations.

In a programme for the Belgian series 'Plat Prefere', or 'Favourite Dish', cook Jeroen Meus goes to Hitler's haunts in southern Germany to prepare trout with butter sauce, 'a succulent festive meal'. It is due to be shown next week.

Criticism was led yesterday by Michael Freilich, the editor of Joods Actueel magazine, who said it was worrying that Hitler is being turned into a banal figure, thus sending 'the wrong signal' to a younger generation.
