The Bikers continue their culinary journey celebrating British food. They look across the Channel to see how our French cousins have influenced the way we cook and eat.

The Bikers look across the Channel to see how our French cousins have influenced the way we cook and eat over the centuries. The Bikers prepare a delicious roast chicken with forty cloves of garlic and a delicate millefeuille. They also show us that Britain is now leading the way in many traditional French areas for gastronomy, from award-winning English wines to outstanding Scottish garlic.
