Season 01, Episode 05 — “Israel”
The Middle East is both the cradle of cuisine and at the cutting edge of modern cooking. In Israel, the Bikers visit the two and a half thousand year old archaeological remains of the world’s first poultry farm and also get a freaky glimpse into what is next for poultry. They play the locals at their own game by cooking a mouthwatering shakshuka on the beach in super trendy, hipster Tel Aviv and make it their mission to discover if chicken soup really is the Jewish penecillin. The boys make their own Arab street food – chicken shawarma kebabs – in Old Jerusalem and they create their version of a Middle Eastern chicken schnitzel – a dish that has its origins in the food of Europe but is now a popular classic in Israel.
The Hairy Bikers are on a mission to find the best chicken and egg recipes in the world. Biking across Europe, the Middle East and America, the boys celebrate the versatility of both chicken and egg.
