1970s

The Bikers revisit the 1970s, showing how a well-prepared chicken cordon bleu and banoffee pie can be a gastronomic delight.

The Bikers revisit the 1970s, a decade which is all too often unfairly stigmatised for its food. They show how a well-prepared chicken cordon bleu and banoffee pie can be a contemporary gastronomic delight, before heading to a restaurant whose menu is a real slice of the 1970s, as well as celebrating a decade which gave us both the self-sufficiency movement and instant food!
