The long-awaited baking bible from the Hairy Bikers AKA Si King and Dave Myers.
About the Author
Winners of TV Personalities of the Year at Fortnum & Mason's Food & Drink Awards 2017.
With their unique blend of tasty recipes, cheeky humour and irresistible enthusiasm, the Hairy Bikers have become Britain's favourite food heroes.
Born and bred in Barrow-in-Furness, Dave Myers' versatile skills have taken him to some unusual places. He worked in a steelworks as a student, to finance his studies in Fine Arts, and later joined the BBC as a make-up artist, specialising in prosthetics.
Si King hails from North East England and is a big, blond bearded biker with an infectious laugh. He worked for many years as an Assistant Director and Locations Manager for film and television, including the Harry Potter films.
Si and Dave met on the set of a TV drama in 1995 and have been cooking and riding together ever since. They have now written 18 cookbooks, including The Hairy Bikers' Mediterranean Adventure, Chicken & Egg, Mums Know Best, Bakeation, Meat Feasts and 12 Days of Christmas. In 2012, the boys shed more than six stone between them on The Hairy Dieters: How to Love Food and Lose Weight. They have also created a range of low-fat sauces (available in Asda and Ocado), launched an online subscription-based weight-loss club, The Hairy Bikers' Diet Club, and published an acclaimed autobiography, Blood, Sweat & Tyres.

UPDATE: I'm not entirely sure that the recipes have been as thoroughly tested as in the excellent pie book. The Spanish Rustic Bread dough was very, very wet - it needed about five good handfuls of flour to make the dough workable. The end result, however, was delicious.
UPDATE again: I've just made the Norwegian Rye Bread: as with all rye breads it's pretty sticky and a fair amount of white flour was used to make the dough mostly workable during kneading. Yet again, the end result is absolutely delicious.
I also bought The Hairy Bikers' Cookbook, and Mums Know Best, so the same principle will apply.
This is good honest cooking. I'm sure two transparent slices of courgette and a blob of sauce have their place, and if given the opportunity I would at least try these delicacies for the experience. I may even get to like said delicacies. In the meantime, Hairy Bikers here I come!
Regards Mr G
This is a fantastic book, the recipes are not overly complex and have tasted great. I was pleasantly surprised that the recipes I have tried have come out looking exactly like the photos! I have always loved the Hairy Bikers as they don't have the arrogance as some of the other TV chefs; and these recipes are impressive and delicious without being too complicated.
By the way we no longer reside in Spain having returned to Ulster in October last year.
George & Ann.
