“We are over excited - to say the least - about our trip to Mississippi: the mix of music, food and motorcycles goes back to the roots and soul of the Hairy Bikers,” said the cooking duo. “The series promises to be a journey of discovery into the culture of food and music of the deep South.
We visit New Orleans for Blues and tamales, Memphis for a soul stew and fried chicken, Nashville for Country and Western, pulled pork and slaw and Lafayette for Cajun and shrimp creole. Living the true spirit of an American road movie, we set out on Harley Davidsons to cover more than three thousand miles of American Tarmac. It feels good to be on the road again. Get your helmets and come along for the ride.”
To accompany the series, the Bikers are launching their first app, to help viewers follow their journey via an interactive map, whilst learning more about the dishes, recipes, flavours and tips from characters that the boys meet along the way.
