The Hairy Bikers Everyday Gourmets



Si King and Dave Myers have made their name cooking real food for real people. But with the country still in the throes of recession, we are all feeling the pinch on our food bills. Undaunted, the Hairies have risen to the challenge of creating mouth-watering dishes that feel like a treat without breaking the bank.

When recession bites, our eating habits change. Typically, we decide to eat out less but indulge ourselves more at home. In their new series, the Hairy Bikers embrace our desire to spoil ourselves by teaching us how to cook gourmet food on a budget, bringing affordable luxury to our home cooking. There are foodie family feasts, delicious dinner party dishes and luxurious lunches on the menu. Importantly, though, everything the Bikers cook will feel like a treat but won't break the bank.

During the series the Bikers cook up some budget-busting delights in the home, garden and on the road, uncover frugal lessons from history, learn money-saving tricks from the restaurant trade, discover a wealth of gourmet but affordable feasts from multi-cultural Britain and share their own wealth of thrifty tips. At the end of each episode they will use everything they have learned to throw a surprise gourmet feast of a life-time for some very deserving people.

Aired on: BBC 2

  • I am looking forward to seeing the new program hopefully we will get it soon in Australia

  • cant wait

  • another fab series from my favourite culinary bikers :) guys you never disappoint

  • Absolutely brill show nicer food to serve friends and family.

  • I can't believe that with all the diverse and variety of beers in this country you allowed your expert to choose a Check lager and 2 American beers which from my experience are not a patch on English beers

  • Enjoyed first episode might try Thai curry paste recipe

  • Enjoyed first episode might try Thai curry sauce recipe

  • Where was the pub where the food/beer pairing was done in Episode 1?

  • a brilliant start to another excellent series keep them coming guys. Hope the recipes will be available soon. Buy the way, still looking slim. Well done.

  • We thoroughly enjoyed your new programme everyday gourmet, but we were very dissapointed when the beer expert who matched the food with beer chose three foreign beers. Surely when there are over 1,000 national, regional and micro breweries in the UK he could have been a bit more patriotic. If the hairy bikers ever visit Dorset, I can recommend at least three beers that would have been just as good if not better. I say support British breweries while we still have some.
