Si King and Dave Myers (better known as The Hairy Bikers) are well, hairy bikers that love to cook. I have several of their recipe books and so shall be reviewing them on here. Don't worry other chefs and other kind of creative books will be on here as well!

One of the main things that I love about The Hairy Bikers is the way they are so down to earth, especially about the cooking they do. No fancy twiddles or tiny portions on a plate with a bit of sauce on these guys love to eat and love to cook food you can really tuck into. One of the first Hairy Bikers books I got was The Hairy Biker's Food Tour of Britain. What an amazing book with recipes from all over Britain such as black pudding with marmalade (much nicer than you would imagine, I discovered. I also first heard about Fidget Pie from this book as well. Since I have a young son who can't sit still I was a little bit worried, but I will tell you more about that in the actual review.
I also love all of their dieting books. They lost over 6 stone between them whilst working on those books and I have a strong trust that the food they prepare will not be entirely composed of salads. I need to shift a few pounds this year.... *shuffles of to get Hairy Dieters book 1* .
Si and Dave have a great many cookery books out and I have to admit that I don't own them all.... yet! But just to get started I will put the book list down and get on with reviewing the four or five I already ready have, after all Mother's Day isn't that far away and I always have room for more Hairy Biker cook books. Well all kinds of cook books to be honest! I may need a bigger house before I finish with this blog.
