The Bikers take a culinary journey through time and celebrate the history of British food.

They explore the history behind our greatest staple food: the humble potato. From a warming Lancashire potato and butter pie to a delicious chicken casserole with potato cobbler, recipes showing the unassuming spud at its best. We see how British potato vodka is winning global awards and remember a dark time in Welsh history when the chippies almost ran out of chips!
