4.5 out of 5 (2 ratings)


THE HAIRY BIKERS: MUMS KNOW BEST is the BBC's biggest food event for years. 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.

This is one of those handy cookbooks that has recipes that you can use & adapt (some of them all ready adapted, the double cooked chips for example). Most of it is straight forward, no weird ingredients or high falutin' techniques here. On the whole a good basic cook book with plenty of stuff. My only complaint is the Index is slightly odd being organized mainly by lead ingredient.Still there is a working crumpet recipe in there and for some (me) that makes it worth owning

Loving this book. Have so far tried several recipes from it, all delicious.
