The Hairy Bikers in Lincoln
Hairy Bikers come to Lincolnshire
A touch of excitement came to Lincolnshire when the hairy bikers rode into the county to cook a local dish for their new series.
The Hairy Bikers back Lincolnshire Sausage Campaign
TV celebrity chefs 'The Hairy Bikers' are backing a campaign to ensure the Lincolnshire sausage is made locally. Si and Dave say it's a good idea.
There were early rumours that they'd been spotted in Louth, then later in the afternoon around a hundred people turned up at Castle Hill in Lincoln to watch them cook a local dish. The celebrity chefs were on a tight deadline, but BBC Radio Lincolnshire's Peter Tat managed to grab them for a quick chat.
The Hairy Bikers also gave their backing to the campaign to keep the Lincolnshire Sausage authentic. DEFRA will decide next month if the Lincolnshire Sausage Association can protect the name and recipe so suppliers can't sell fake sausages and pretend they're an authentic Lincolnshire sausage.
