Mums Know Best at Christmas

The Hairy Bikers, Si King and Dave Myers are on the search for the most interesting food that Britain's mums are cooking for their families this Christmas.

Celebrating the very best of Christmas Cooking in Britain, Si and Dave tour the nation hunting out Britain's festive favourites and a few surprises. On their journey they find mums cooking everything from Roast Goose with all the trimmings to Pinnekjott (that's salted cured lamb steamed over birch twigs to you and me) and from festive Gingerbread to Christmassy coconut samosas!

The lads also conjure up their own seasonal specialities including loin of venison in home made sloe gin and lime seared scallops with smoked salmon fritters.

The celebration of Christmas favourites culminates at a snow-bound stately home filled with nearly 150 mums tasting and sharing each others' favourite dishes.
