In this spectacular series...
Dave Myers and Simon King make an epic 5000 mile journey across Europe, combining their two loves - baking and biking.
Their odyssey begins on the West coast of Norway and takes them through some of Europe’s most dramatic scenery as they cook and eat their way across 12 countries, ending in Spain. En route, they bake local specialities such as classic rye bread, Belgian chocolate cheesecake and Riesling pork pies all with “a hairy twist”. They also seek out some of the best artisan bakers in Europe, both professionals and home-cooks, as well as catching up with family and friends scattered across the continent.
And, as you’d expect from Si and Dave, there are plenty of adventures along the way in this, a celebration of baking and biking as only the Hairy Bikers would do it.
