  • Series Premiere

    2008-08-19T00:30:00Z — 30 mins

The boys are back! The Hairy Bikers, Dave Myers and Simon King take to the road to find the very best in baking in Britain. The first programme in the series looks at bread. How many of us can turn out a decent loaf?

1x02 Teatime Treats

  • 2008-08-26T00:30:00Z — 30 mins

Tonight, against a backdrop of indifferent fields, the divisive cooks announce their intention to "get out the posh china and put on a right hairy tea". A euphemism? If only. Alas, they are merely creating slightly unusual versions of "the classic high tea", such as sprinkling some cinnamon in a Victoria sandwich. Among the clouds of cornflour and innuendo, we may discern the following: a visual joke involving an unsettlingly thick cucumber and an argument over the correct pronunciation of the word scone.

Dave and Si start in the far South West cooking traditional pasties at Geevor Tin Mine in Cornwall, then head northwards to the Midlands, and then on to Huntly in Aberdeenshire, where our hungry hairy bikers sample an extraordinary range of pies - Scotch pie, macaroni pie, and mashed potato and baked bean pie.
