Family Favourites

The Hairy Bikers: Mums Know Best is a celebration of the very best of home cooking in Britain. Si and Dave have toured the nation hunting out Britain's lost family recipes - those forgotten gems and secret scribbles that have been handed down through the generations but are in danger of being lost forever.

In this programme Si and Dave are celebrating 'family favourites' - those dishes that speak of home and childhood and love. This celebration starts north of the border with visits to three Scottish mums. The Bikers discover what family recipes these mums have been treating their loved ones to over the years.

From a classic cheese pie and 'rumpy-pumpy soup' to samosas and a world of fantastic cakes, the Hairy Bikers sample them all and, inspired by the cooking of these mums, they take a trip down memory lane to cook their own family favourite recipes.

Their celebration of family food ends up (as all good celebrations do) in a field filled with nearly 200 mums tasting and sharing each others' family-favourite cooking.

So join the Bikers as they set off on their biggest adventure to date - an adventure in the world of the fantastic cooking of Britain's mums.
