Mums Know Best: The Hairy Bikers’ Family Cookbook

Si and Dave undertake a nationwide search for Britain’s lost recipes - those forgotten gems or secret scribbles handed down through the generations - for a landmark TV series. The Bikers send out a call-to-arms for mums, daughters and their grandmothers to unlock their private recipe archives and share with, and learn from, other mums of all races and backgrounds. This is a heart-warming and down-to-earth recipe book that takes place against beautiful British backdrops throughout the summer. Here yummy mummies, Northern matriarchs, West Indian foster mums and ladies of the manor all come together with recipes to share, tips to swap and techniques to learn, in a book that contains 112 different recipes.

THE HAIRY BIKERS: MUMS KNOW BEST is the BBC’s biggest food event for years. (http://www.orionbooks.co.uk/)

About Simon King

Author Web Link: http://www.hairybikers.com/

Hailing from North East England, Simon King is a big, blonde-bearded biker with an infectious laugh, and a charm and sense of humour that’s a skeleton key when it comes to getting into people’s hearts and homes.  This easy congeniality and warmth served him well for years in his work as a First Assistant Director and Locations Manager for film and television (including the HARRY POTTER series of films), but his passions lie elsewhere.

A love of food was encouraged early by his family and particularly Si’s father, who would bring back exotic ingredients from his voyages with the Royal Navy, and Simon’s enthusiasm is matched by his own children’s willingness to try new kinds of food. 

Si and Dave are not professional chefs so much as life-long foodies; they met through work on the set of a drama (appropriately enough on a Catherine Cookson adaptation) and they take every opportunity they can to pack their panniers and head off in search of authentic culinary and cultural experiences in all corners of the world.

For BBC2 they have made two series of THE HAIRY BIKERS’ COOKBOOK, a third series called THE HAIRY BIKERS RIDE AGAIN, a one-off special, THE HAIRY BIKERS COME HOME and the four-part series THE HAIRY BAKERS which won audiences of over four million viewers.  This was rounded off with a one hour HAIRY BAKERS CHRISTMAS SPECIAL drawing audiences of around 5 million. Meanwhile Si and Dave came a creditable second on THE WEAKEST LINK.

2009 has been busy for both, with a giant 30 part series for BBC2 called THE HAIRY BIKERS' FOOD TOUR OF BRITAIN which will screen this Autumn.  The future looks equally busy with another Christmas special commissioned called THE HAIRY BIKERS TWELVE DAYS OF CHRISTMAS and a major 6 x 1 hour prime time series for BBC2 entitled MUMS KNOW BEST.

THE HAIRY BIKERS have written two books to date, published by Michael Joseph/Penguin and available on Amazon, with two more books in the pipeline for publication in the near future.  Dave and Si are both Members of the Food Writers' Guild.

Si lives near Newcastle with his wife and three children.  (http://www.hairybikers.com/)

About David Myers

Author Web Link: http://www.hairybikers.com/

Born and bred in Barrow-in-Furness, Dave Myers’ versatile skills have taken him to some unusual places. He worked as a furnaceman in a steelworks whilst a student, to finance a degree and postgraduate studies in Fine Arts at Goldsmiths, where he studied egg tempera and the work of the Old Masters.

On graduating, Dave joined the BBC as a make-up artist, specialising in prosthetics.  He went on to work on numerous feature films and high-profile television series, notably LIVES AND LOVES OF A SHE DEVIL, PRIME SUSPECT and the BBC1 hit series SPOOKS.  His career has taken him from Hollywood to the African deserts.  He’s also travelled extensively away from work, picking up recipes and cultures almost as fast as he’s made friends all over the world, not the least of whom is Simon King, Dave’s boon travelling companion and the other half of the Hairy Biking duo.

For BBC2 they have made two series of THE HAIRY BIKERS’ COOKBOOK, a third series called THE HAIRY BIKERS RIDE AGAIN, a one-off special, THE HAIRY BIKERS COME HOME and the four-part series THE HAIRY BAKERS which won audiences of over four million viewers.  This was rounded off with a one hour HAIRY BAKERS CHRISTMAS SPECIAL drawing audiences of around 5 million. Meanwhile Dave shocked himself by winning CELEBRITY MASTERMIND, and he and Si came a creditable second on THE WEAKEST LINK.
