Hairy Bikers: Mums Know Best

About the Show

About the Show

The adventures of food-loving Si King and Dave Myers have taken them all around the world but they’ve never lost their passion for good old fashioned home cooking. So, in an effort to search out the best traditional recipes from their own country, the hairy pair are getting back on their bikes and sending out a call-to-arms for mums, daughters and their grandmothers to unlock their private recipe archives to share with the nation. From matriarchs to ‘yummy mummies’, they share dishes that have fed generations. In each episode three mums showcase a great family recipe that needs to be shared with the nation. The Hairy Bikers even visit their homes, delving into recipe books and heirloom kitchen equipment, all the while learning the secrets that make theirs the very best family favourite recipe. Heart-warming and down-to-earth, this is a series that promises to plunder the secrets of cookbooks past, rediscover cooking techniques and recreate dishes that have all but disappeared from the nation’s tables.

all the recipes from the series (and most other UK & USA series) are available on the production site, in this case BBC -
Food channel has to pay royalties for recipes, so grab the recipes when they first appear or they may disappear forever from Food site if they feel it is no longer cost effective to pay the royalties!
