With their zest for both adventure and food and their laugh-out-loud capacity for fun, the Hairy Bikers make a very entertaining pair, travelling on their motorbikes to the ends of the earth in search of great meals to bring home to their friends. The journeys are exciting, the locations and people are fascinating and the food is delicious and unpredictable, often caught by the boys and then prepared and cooked by the side of a river, on a boat or on the beach. Funny, endearing and down-to-earth, they will very easily find a place in the nation's hearts.
