THE Hairy Bikers new BBC Two show sees them travel down the west coast of the UK, starting in Scotland and ending in Devon.

The first episode of The Hairy Bikers Go West is showing on Tuesday, February 6, between 7pm and 8pm.

Starting their great adventure in one of Dave and Si’s favourite places in the whole world, The Bikers return to Scotland and the roads where they first became best friends.

The show kicks off in a place that holds very special memories for them both, the Isle of Bute.

Their first stop is a local deli, run by Erin, where the Bikers discover a ‘shop window’ of some of the best produce the island has to offer.

Dave and Si fill their baskets with local bread, fish, cheese and pies before enjoying a fabulous picnic while taking in some fantastic Scottish views.

After lunch, The Bikers get back on the road and discover a patisserie owned and run by a Syrian family, who came to the island to escape their country’s war. They meet Maj, a young man who arrived on Bute when he was only 12 but is now creating the most delicious cakes and tarts.

After the patisserie, Dave and Si stop to create a recipe inspired by and based on their experience of Bute so far.

Together, they hit the kitchen and cook a lamb Sfiha, a middle eastern flatbread topped with meat and spices, as a nod to the Syrian flavours at the patisserie, serves with a salad inspired by Bute Produce from the deli.

After cooking up a storm in the kitchen, the Bikers hit the road, and head towards an exciting project that aims to re-introduce truffles to the island.

Dave and Si discover that locals, Paul and Lindsay have planted an orchard of Oak and Hazel trees on Bute and hope to grow truffles for local chefs to use.

Visiting the truffle farm sparks Dave and Si’s creativity, and they plan to pair truffles with a very traditional Scottish dish for a new recipe.

In search of Haggis, The Bikers drop in to see brothers David and Ronald, who inherited the last remaining butchers on the island from their father, Alistair. The brothers treat Dave and Si to a lesson in how to make award winning haggis using local produce.

Once they’ve headed back to the kitchen, Dave and Si begin working on Chicken Balmoral, a chicken breast sliced, stuffed with haggis, wrapped in bacon and served with a rich cream pepper and whisky sauce. To acknowledge their new friend Paul and his puppy Roo, they pair the dish with a truffle mash.

For their final dish, The Bikers create Salmon en croute, stuffed with watercress, spinach and cream cheese and served with a delicious dill sauce.
