Review

Dave Myers and Si King must be the busiest men on TV. It’s not long since The Hairy Bikers Everyday Gourmet left our screens and yet here they are again, with a new, 20-part daily series focusing on the best of British food.

The pair travel the country hunting for the best traditional recipes, chatting to food historians and the “food heroes” who are preserving British heritage dishes.

In the first episode Myers and King taste British fowl. Not roast chicken, but duck tikka, a one-pot partridge recipe, and a traditional, decadent, bird-packed Yorkshire Christmas pie. It’s all rounded off with a magnificent, rhubarb-topped custard tart.
