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.

Sometimes you just can't go to bed without a belly-full of your favourite supper. The Hairy Bikers delve into the legacy of those simple dishes that send us off to bed feeling warm and satisfied. Whether it's a Portuguese take on fish and chips, a salmon curry or the perfect meat and potato pie, Si King and Dave Myers explore why these have all made it into the hearts and recipe books of three mums with a story to tell and a family to feed.

The simple supper celebration climaxes in a field filled with nearly 200 mums tasting and sharing their favourite dishes. So join the Bikers as they continue their biggest adventure to date.
