The Hairy Bikers Bakeation poster


Si King and Dave Myers take an epic 5000 mile gastronomic road trip across Europe, meeting extraordinary artisan bakers and tasting the best baking on offer across the Continent. En route the boys feed their bellies and their hearts, meeting everyone from home bakers to Michelin-starred patissiers to learn the secrets of their baking success. They also catch up with friends and relatives to see what great home cooks produce to feed their families. As the bikers go on their freewheeling trip through Europe, they stop to cook their own dishes, inspired by the country they're visiting and the local ingredients they discover. It's the journey of a lifetime and there's a fair bit of madness thrown in as they find plenty of time to party at the locals' festivities and cultural events as well as taking in must-see sights and activities.

Episode summary:

After nearly 5000 miles, the Hairy Bikers reach the last leg of their journey which takes them through northern Spain. Their journey starts in San Sebastian where they get stuck in to the local cuisine with pinchos (tapas gone large!), a traditional Basque dining club and goose barnacles, a challenging local delicacy. They bake up a storm too, in the form of a pan rustico (traditional bread), a fabulous Basque chicken pie and a seafood empanada, packed with locally caught fish. But that's not all. They also learn the secret properties of spelt, Europe's forgotten grain and use it to bake not only bread but a giant spelt sausage roll, packed with chorizo. In Galicia, they join in local celebrations - a quiemada - which involve flaming liquour and an ancient pagan ceremony. Their 5000 mile adventure ends in Santiago de Compostela with a spectacular firework display to celebrate the 800th anniversary of St James. Great food and great company, the Spanish leg is a fitting end to the Hairy Bikers brilliant Bake-ation.
