The Hairy Bikers' Food Tour of Britain

In this series, Si and Dave are back on their bikes, sampling the best of British fare from across the isles.

The Hairy Bikers' Food Tour of Britain

There are 86 counties in the British Isles and the Bikers have covered 30 of them, from Aberdeenshire to Cornwall, Fermanagh to Norfolk, north to south, west to east.

Covering 15,000 miles in their culinary tour of Britain’s counties, they meet the locals and learn about how the land and the produce has informed the way we eat. In each episode, the Hairies will taste that county's 'signature dish'. They visit local food producers and hunt for their ingredients before cooking the county's traditional favourite on location in front of an audience of locals. The crowd are then invited to sample the food and pass their verdicts.

The boys are then pushed outside their comfort zone as they face a cook-off against some of each county's best chefs to create a unique dish using local produce that typifies the county. Not used to cooking in the kitchens of fine-dining restaurants, the Bikers need all the help they can get to find inspiration and source their ingredients.
