Hairy Bikers - Chicken & Egg


The Middle East is both the cradle of cuisine and at the cutting edge of modern cooking. In Israel, the Bikers visit the 2,500-year old archaeological remains of the world's first poultry farm and also get a freaky glimpse into what is next for poultry. They play the locals at their own game by cooking a mouthwatering shakshuka on the beach in supertrendy, hipster Tel Aviv, and make it their mission to discover if chicken soup really is the Jewish penicillin. The boys make their own Arab street food - chicken shawarma kebabs - in Old Jerusalem, and they create their version of a Middle Eastern chicken schnitzel - a dish that has its origins in the food of Europe but is now a popular classic in Israel.
