Si and Dave aren't professional chefs but they are life-long food lovers. They met through work and ever since they've been heading off to far-flung corners of the globe in search of authentic culinary and cultural experiences.
Take two blokes, two bikes, ample facial hair, a large dollop of adventure and garnish with infectious enthusiasm. But Northern lads Dave Myers and Si King aren’t trained chefs; they simply love food.
Donning their leathers and helmets, the amiable pair travel across the world, learning to cook regional delicacies that are inextricably tied up with the cultures they visit. The journeys are exhilarating, the locations inspiring, and the food delicious, if a little unusual...
Full of zest, warm-hearted humour and plenty of surprising yet easily made at home recipes, this is a down-to-earth series about two men, their motorcycles and the only thing they love more than their beloved bikes – food.
But what exactly is this programme? Travel show? Cookery show? The Hairy Bikers’ Cookbook is... the Hairy Bikers. It’s them: a large Geordie and an ample Cumbrian, Si’s love of offal, Dave’s simmering passion for Delia Smith, their whole larger-than-life spirit of adventure. And the glue that binds this unusual mix together is their genuine friendship; possibly the one thing in television that is still impossible to fake.
