Bought the book because I loved the TV series. Excellent set of recipes. Very easy to follow and made me try out some new stuff. Love the way it encourages you to use British products. Contains both the recipes the boys cook plus the professional chef recipes. Would make a lovely present.

This book is both informative and entertaining. Recommended as an ideal Christmas Present for all.

The research and travel that was necessary for the production of the book must have been endless and, at times, frustrating. The Hairy Bikers give good insight into the counties that they visit, and make you want to visit them. If you want a good night out at a good restaurant in any given area then this is the book for you.

it is also recommended that you arrange to view the TV series. The cheery disposition of the bikers, and their great cookery knowledge, can readily be seen.

I think the best way to judge the contents of a recipe book is to see how often it gets used. I own many books from various Chefs but none receive the attention this one does. The recipes are delicious, straightforward to cook, easily tweaked if you prefer a different ingredient and offer good home cooking. I especially recommend the Lobsgows; the Beef & Stilton Pie and the Somerset Chicken. 10/10 food goodness from the Bikers.

I am really enjoying this book. I have enjoyed the series and the book is a
perfect reflection of the tv episodes.

This is a well produced and glossy book with lots of photographs (including
one for each recipe, always invaluable) and clear text. The recipes include
both those made by the Hairy Bikers and by the chefs that they visited on
their travels. The Recipes are well laid out and easy to follow. The book is
organized by area, alphabetically, and there's a small map of the UK to show
where each area actually is geographically.

Each chapter is introduced with a swift lok at the area visited, with
various producers mentioned by name. At the end of the book there is a list
of producers and suppliers (telephone / web) followed by an Index which is
organized principally by ingredients (e.g. to find a recipe for trout look
under "fish").

The recipes are very varied, which is excellent. There's a good mix of meat
and seafood, with lots of sauces and vegetable accompaniments. Some of the
recipes, like Kevin Viner's Fillet of Monkfish in Cornish Wine with Pickled
Celeriac and Cucumber are delicate, finely dressed and very modern, whilst
others, like the bikers' steak and kidney pudding, are solid, full-flavoured
and traditional. That's a nice balance.

I have two small reservations, both of which echo the tv series.
- Many of the ingredients are difficult to source
- Many of the combinations delivered on the plate are far too extreme

The first of these is impossible to criticise in any meaningful way because
the whole point of the series was to visit different areas and use the
ingredients local to those places.

I really like The Hairy Bikers, even though they are a couple of wallies, albeit extremely likeable and enthusiastic ones!

I never miss anything they do on TV, although it never ceases to amaze me just how silly they are willing to make themselves look, all in the interest of entertainment!

I think though that ultimately what it comes down to for me is (and many other fans of the dynamic duo) that they firstly seem like genuinely nice and funny guys, and that secondly they regularly cook the type of food most people really like; hearty food that isn't too complicated to emulate, but that usually must be made or eaten in moderation because of their apparent desire to stay away from anything healthy.

Another thing that sets The Hairy Bikers cookery books apart from many others, is that it is only ocassionally that they include recipes I would be unwilling to try.

Anyway on to this book, 'The Hairy Bikers' Food Tour of Britain'.

I thoroughly enjoyed the series that this book accompanies, if memory serves me correctly it ran for a total of thirty episodes; it ran each evening, Monday to Friday, for six weeks. I loved the way in which each episode concentrated on a particular region, and the dishes that have been handed down from generation to generation; each episode culminated in a 'cook-off' between The Hairy Bikers and one of the regions more respected chefs, each presenting their own interpretation of a regional dish to a small discerning group of diners to vote for, some The Bikers won and some they lost (which was refreshing to see).

If you like to support local producers and enjoy the recipes thereof, as well as visiting places of interest in relation to that theme, then this is a book for you. We take it whenever we travel to different parts of Britain and have used the information as a guide for hotels and local restaurants too, all with success. It is a well illustrated, practical book with all the recipes used in the series presented in the usual Hairy Bikers' style. Would make a good historical reference book in years to come. Would also make a good gift to send to those living overseas: to ex-pats as a reminder of what they are missing or to the locals as an overview of what is out there in our nation.
