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.

Product Description

Review

Food heroes Si King and Davey Myers have travelled to Hong Kong, Japan, Thailand and Korea, sampling every kind of food they could get their hands on. In this fab new book, they bring home the best recipes for us to try. They're speedy to make, packed with flavour and healthy too, so the diet doesn't have to go out of the window! (CLOSER)

For their latest book, Si King and Dave Myers travelled to Hong Kong, Japan, Thailand and Korea. The result is a beautiful collection of fresh, healthy and enticingly authentic recipes with everything from miso baked black cod to pad thai, and clay pot duck with ginger. There's also a useful A-Z of ingredients and a nationwide list of suppliers (WAITROSE KITCHEN 'Book of the Month')

This collection, accompanying the new BBC TV series, includes recipes from Thailand, Japan, Korea and Hong Kong. Spicy, fresh and simple to cook, there are lots of street food snacks and satisfying main course dishes to inspire and the boys use ingredients widely available in the UK. (BBC GOOD FOOD MAGAZINE)

The thing I like most about Mr Myers and Mr King is the passion with which they enjoy what they cook... another absolute triumph in a long line of successful cookery books. Worth owning for the Panang Beef Curry recipe on Pae 108 which I now crave more than anything else I've cooked in ages! (Ben Keenan, Waterstones, Butter Market, Bury St Edmonds BURY FREE PRESS)

Full of tempting recipes from dim sum to Japanese pizza, chow mein to penang beef curry. If you've not dabbled in Asian cooking before, this book will most certainly convert you. Si and Dave have put their own twist on well-known recipes as well as introducing some more unUsual ones. Recipes are easy to follow and the photography makes the book (CHOICE)

Book Description

In this BBC TV tie-in book, bestselling, big-hearted and down-to-earth chefs, The Hairy Bikers, tour Asia to find the best authentic recipes.

We pre ordered this book as my wife is a big fan of the Hairy Bikers and we already own two of their other books (from the Hairy Dieters series).

We are keen cooks and like to cook a lot of meals from scratch but it has to be said that when it comes to Asian food, our knowledge and experience is lacking, despite loving this type of cuisine, with only a couple of recipes that we tend to do frequently at home.

I have posted a more in-depth review for those that are interested after this initial summary, as well as a full recipe list at the end, but to try and briefly summarise the main things I like about the book:

- Every single recipe has an image; the majority have a large colour image or multiple images, and a few will have the image on the page before or after that recipe.

- As with their other books we own, the Hairy Bikers’ methods are in-depth and really explain the recipe well, leaving you in no doubt as to what to do, and which ingredients you can or can’t substitute (I have uploaded a couple of images on this page to help try and show what a typical recipe page looks like).

- My wife loves the fact Si and Dave have made an effort to keep the recipes healthy even though this isn’t formally a part of their dieting series (note no calorie info though)

- The recipes, as with many books, seem to vary in their apparent difficulty. As we are relatively new to cooking Asian cuisine there are some recipes we can’t wait to try, and others that look a little complicated for now or require ingredients we don’t think we’ll be able to get in our local supermarket, and may be more something to try and a weekend when we have the time (the time for things to potentially go wrong!).

Looking for criticisms… I sincerely have none.

I think I'm a bit addicted to Hairy Biker recipe books as I seem to have pretty much every one they've done. I was going to give this one a miss because I didn't think there would be enough different recipes that I don't already have, but once I watched the TV show, I knew I had to have it! Lots of lovely pictures as usual, really important for me, I need to like the look of what I'm going to cook (and have an idea of what it should look like at the end!), and straightforward instructions as usual. It really is worth just working your way through and giving everything a go because we've yet to come across anything that we don't like. This is another great addition to what is already a ridiculously large collection of TV cook books.

Great fun book, easy to follow, some unusual ingredients but not impossible to find. Si and Dave are able to bring something of each region to life.

Fantastic, but prepare to spend a lot on ingredients, also need a Chinese supermarket or shop online, but we'll worth it

I received the book about a month ago. I have tried three recipes so far: the ‘hot and spicy squid salad’, ‘Thai massaman chicken curry’ where I replaced the chicken breast by chicken thighs (more juicy) and the ‘Thai fish ball noddle soup’. I am extremely happy with the resulting dishes!!! The flavours and the textures are wonderful. Having the guidance of these recipes has opened new doors for me, using ingredients I wasn’t used too. Many of the recipes require a few ingredients we might not have commonly in our cupboards, but nonetheless, these are very easy to get in Chinese supermarkets.
The ‘Asian Adventure’ of the `Hairy Bikers’ is an excellent overview of the food traditions of the Far East. A very big thank you to Si, Dave and all the team behind this project, for given us a very good insight into the Far East cuisine, and as part of this, this book that gives easy access to achieving those wonderful dishes.
