Hairy Bikers’ Best of British episode 21 – Food Festivals: Here, the duo look at the history of food festivals and the food with which the British celebrate them. We certainly love any excuse to put on a spread. Thankfully there are plenty of food festivals in our calendar that allow us to indulge.
The bikers continue their culinary journey through time as they celebrate British food. The Hairy Bikers, aka Dave Myers and Si King, are riding high again and on a mission to prove that British food is the best in the world. It’s a travelling history lesson, of sorts, as the Bikers make their way around the country and use food as a way to find out about Britain’s past, from how the recipes evolved to the way in which the ingredients were produced. Along the way they meet the `food heroes’ who are keeping Britain’s gourmet heritage alive.
