From Transylvania to Vietnam, from Namibia to Mexico, the Hairy Bikers have been travelling the world for over three years, immersing themselves in local cultures and learning to cook regional delicacies. Now it’s time to come home. The Hairy Bikers Come Home sees Si and Dave go back to their roots to discover what they have on their own doorsteps. First stop is Dave’s birthplace, Barrow-in-Furness, home to whippets, sawdust and Northern soul food. The boys stop at Green’s, where warming meat and potato pies have been made for generations. Bury market is home to the renowned black pudding, the basis of the boys’ Lancashire Hotpot, which they rustle up in front of a crowd of Bury shoppers and then it’s onto Waberthwaite, home for almost 200 years to Woodalls and their famous Cumberland sausages and air-dried hams. Over the Hartside Pass, they visit Carroll’s potato farm, before heading onto Bamburgh Castle, followed by crab soup at the Jolly Fisherman – something Si has enjoyed ever since he was a tiny boy. Next they roar down the Tyne in Dave’s powerboat to meet the trawlermen at North Shields Fish Quay; a fish market to rival any in northern France and a chance to serve up the ultimate fish pie. Finally they make it home to see Stella, Si’s 86-year-old mother, who still lives on the estate where he grew up. It’s a time to reflect on the old times, traditional miner’s fare, and how northern families catered for their menfolk.
Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery. If you have come to Darwin city, you will understand the local culture and history of Darwin, taste some delicious food and enjoy the amazing scenery here ,also take some photo is a pretty good experience . do you think so.
