Episode 47: The Hairy Bikers: Dave Myers and Si King; TV chefs and best-selling authors

My guests today are The Hairy Bikers, whose real names are Dave Myers and Simon King. 

Dave previously worked as a make-up artist, for the BBC where he specialised in prosthetics. Si worked for many years as an Assistant Director and Locations Manager for film and television, including the Harry Potter films.

The pair met on the set of a TV drama 23 years ago and discovered that they found they shared a love of riding motorbikes, cooking – and eating. Since then their popularly has soared, they have gone on to have countess TV shows and they have written more than 20 successful cookbooks which is pretty impressive! 

Desert island dish:

starter: Italian Salumi 

Main Tournedos Rossini 

Pudding: banana crème brulee and cheese board 

Luxury item: 

Dave: motorbike

Si: Sharp knives and some string

I definitely had a little fan girl moment trying to invite myself to supper – pretty sure I wanted to nominate myself to be the 3rd hairy biker – but I don’t quite have the beard for it…
