The Hairy Bikers continue their adventure across northern England, and this week they are riding across North Yorkshire, the biggest county in England. On this leg, the bikers will be exploring the wild lands of the Yorkshire moors and the amazing producers that call the North York Moors National Park their home.
They meet a former hairdresser who is looking after the rare mangalica breed of woolly pigs, the youngest ever chef to receive a Michelin star, an award-winning beekeeper and a local forager Chris Bax. Along the way, they cook up a series of delicious meals including a mangalica pork wellington, a German bee sting cake and a root vegetable tray bake.
Chris, Rose and I would like to wish Dave a speedy recovery from the covid virus. On BBC breakfast Si said “He’s getting there. I think it’s hit him a little bit harder than any of us were anticipating, really. But Dave is as tough as an old boot.”
