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.

On your one special day, you deserve the best dish on the menu and who better to steer you in the right direction than the Hairy Bikers? Join Si King and Dave Myers as they visit three mums and discover what they hold dearest for the day of many happy returns.

The lads rustle up a summer berry trifle, while our mums treat the boys to such varied dishes as a Manchester tart, Greek stuffed vine leaves and a Caribbean Saturday soup courtesy of a Jamaican mum who wants to spread the love of food to the world.

The celebration climaxes in a field filled with nearly 200 mums tasting and sharing their favourite dishes.
