The Hairy Bikers: Bakeation (8 x 60′) – In 2012 the Hairy Bikers will be back where they are best loved; on the road and sharing the intimate secrets of family recipes. With a 2,000 mile gastronomic road trip across Europe including France, Germany, Italy, Scandinavia, and the Czech Republic, the bikers seek out the best baking on offer; from simple peasant breads to complex confections made by the finest patissiers. They will also serve up the perfect accompaniments such as soups, charcuterie and cheeses.
The Hairy Bikers: Bakeation is part travelogue, part cookery and part family food history. The Hairy duo will meet a range of characters on the road, from amateur cooks to professional bakers, and will explore the secret family recipes that have been passed from generation to generation in the European countries they travel through.
