Product Description

Book Description

THE HAIRY BIKERS: MUMS KNOW BEST is the BBC's biggest food event for years.

About the Author

Si King hails from north east England and is a big, blond, bearded biker with an infectious laugh. His love of food was established at a young age when his father bought exotic ingredients back from his Royal Navy voyages. Born and bred in Barrow-in-Furness, Dave Myers joined the BBC as a make-up artist, and while travelling the world with hit TV series he picked up recipes and Simon, Dave's travelling companion and the other half of the hairy bikers.

Format: Hardcover
A great book full of well known recipes, most of which I will eventually try. A bargain for £5. Unfortunately, the contents page is useless with just six section pages (e.g 'show-off food', birthday treats' etc). Decided I wouldnt use the book much if I had to browse through every page to find inspiration or to find a recipe a second time so spent ages creating a proper contents page.Read more ›

I started watching this series on the TV last week and frantically searched the web for the recipes featured - but to no avail. As soon as I saw this book for pre-sale I ordered it immediately and eagerly awaited its arrival.

The book has recently been received and I am very impressed with its content; easy to follow recipes which are not full of strange ingredients you wouldn't find in an "ordinary" kitchen and best of all meals which can remind you of your childhood and are a pleasure to both cook and eat.

Not only that but other foods which different cultures eat and are a great addition to meals which you ordinarily cook. The pictures alone have me salivating and quoting Si "oooohh look at that, man".

I have bought a couple of previous books by The Hariy Bikers and I have not bothered making many of the recipes, however, this is not the case with this book, I know I will return to this time and time again for hearty, family friendly, delicious meals.

Urgent note to anyone purchasing this book, once you start dishing out biscuits to friends and family, you will find that you are inundated with requests for more - this has proved to be costly but I am now a family favourite! Beware!

The book was purchased after watching the series on TV, and it has not disappointed, in fact it has exceeded expectations.
The recipes are all good honest food, that are just as the title suggests "Mums Know Best" we have tried 3 already, which is unknown with all the previous cookbooks that my wife has accumulated over the years.
We would recommend this cookbook to anyone, absolutely FIRST CLASS
Try the Cottage Pie !

After watching the series on tv just had to buy this book. I have tried quite a few of the recipes and every one was a winner. The recipe for shortcrust pastry is well worth a try. It's really lovely

I really enjoy the programs that I have seen with The Hairy Bikers (aka Si King and Dave Myers). I find their down-to-earth approach refreshing and ‘real’, and they present food that is familiar, yet innovative and exciting – new views on old favourites, with the ability for any cook in any kitchen to be able to recreate these wonderful dishes.

The Hairy Bikers have produced two books with ‘Mum’s’ recipes – Mums Know Best, and Mums Still Know Best. These are great books with recipes that you will remember and recall, and new ones to add to your cooking repertoire.

In this book there are six main sections:
Family Favourites – includes how to make the best fish and chips ever, Cheese Pie (which is divine), Beany Mince, Samosas (with variations), Lemon Drizzle Cake, Coffee Kisses and many more.
Show-off Food – includes foolproof Mayonnaise, Kringel (which I have made the savoury version of, and which is divine), Coronation Chicken (a modern version of the old favourite), Apple Compote (to go with pork) and many more.
Good Simple Suppers – includes Meat & Potato Pie, Fishcakes, Curries, Soups and many more.
Birthday Treats – includes a delicious Summer Berry Trifle, Cottage Pie with Cheesy Mash, Chocolate Mousse Trio, Welsh Griddle Cakes (which are utterly divine) and many more.
Sunday Dinners – includes Yorkshire Pudding, Toad in the Hole, Roast Beef, Roast Potatoes, Lemon Meringue Pie, Bread and Butter Pudding, Steak & Ale Pie and many more.
Picnics – includes Scotch Eggs, Courgette Fritters, Victoria Sandwich and many more.

This is a great book (as is the other one in this series by The Hairy Bikers). There are great recipes to discover and try, all laid out clearly, all with photos and clear directions and instructions. You can’t go wrong.
