The Hairy Bikers are on a mission to find the best chicken and egg recipes in the world in their new series ‘The Hairy Bikers’ Chicken And Egg’.
Biking across Europe, the Middle East and America, the celebrity chefs Dave Myers and Si King celebrate the versatility of both chicken and egg.
Episode one of six starts on Tuesday (September 6) at 8pm on BBC2. They start their search on home turf, showing viewers how to ensure a perfect roast chicken every time. The hirsute pair discover how and when chickens first came to the UK and why they have become so popular – not just for food but also as pets.
They visit a county show in north Wales to meet some prizewinning breeds and use local eggs to make Welsh cakes and Welsh rarebit. Chicken and leek suet pudding and scotch eggs are all on the Dave and Si’s cook list as they crisscross the country celebrating the nation’s passion for poultry.
