Family Classics

Series celebrating home cooking. The bikers are on the hunt for those recipes which are a firm favourite in every household and are requested time and again.

The bikers are on the hunt for family classics - those recipes which are a firm favourite in every household and are requested time and again by every member of the family.

In East Anglia they meet three mums for whom family meals are an important and special time. Rosita Minichiello is an Italian mum whose meatballs are so loved by her husband and daughters that they sing a meatball song in celebration. Victoria Jones helps run the family farm and has three hungry sons who all love her grandma's chocolate mousse; and Padmaja Kochera is a mum from southern India who remembers her dad every time she cooks his vadas with sambhar and his chicken curry.

The Bikers head to the coast and cook up their family favourites - a tasty sausage and bean casserole, followed by the classic jam roly poly and custard, perfect in the pouring rain. And the family classics continue to roll in at the recipe fair. Food historian Gerard tastes trifle, fruit cake and macaroni cheese among many other family favourites.
