Hairy Bikers' Bakeation

30 Minute Versions: 3. Germany

Germany is one of Dave's favourite countries. Here, the Bikers prove that German cuisine isn't all sausages and beer, but is based on regional specialities, such as pretzels and Germany's white gold - white asparagus. They discover the Germans' passion for bread of every shape, size and flavour, and turn out first-class potato bread with asparagus soup.

As they approach the end of their ride in Bavaria, they borrow a communal village wood oven to rustle up bierocks (meat-filled rolls), the perfect accompaniment to a stein of beer. Then they follow the Zoigl star, symbol of local micro-breweries, and find themselves drinking with locals in a traditional Bavarian tavern. Spectacular countryside, great food and Germany as you've never seen it before.
