Hairy Biker Dave travels to Egypt, home to some of the oldest recipes known to man. From the fantastic street food of one of the world's greatest cities, Cairo, to a family feast 500 miles south in ancient Aswan, Dave voyages up the Nile to find the origins of some of our favourite dishes.
On this epic adventure, Dave fulfils a boyhood dream to visit the pyramids of Giza and learns that they were built by labour fed on no more than the humble loaf. He goes off the beaten track to the lush oasis of Al Fayoum in search of a dish with mythical properties and, on the banks of the River Nile, discovers a place where ancient man first turned to farming. Venturing further into the land of the pharaohs, Dave finds what he's been searching for - the origins of baking and the living proof of a food that changed the eating habits of the planet.
To mark the end of his journey, Dave is invited by a family of Nubians for a feast to celebrate the end of Eid al-Adha. He helps prepare a traditional meal that has become legendary across the entire Arab world and receives hospitality he'll never forget.
