TV chefs the Hairy Bikers, otherwise know as Si King and Dave Myers, visited the Eden Project yesterday (Thursday January 15) to film part of the Cornwall leg of their forthcoming BBC series Food Tour of Britain (working title).

A crowd of more than 100 people gathered in the citrus grove region of the Mediterranean Biome to be entertained by the bikers and watch them add their twist to a traditional Cornish recipe.

Food Tour of Britain will follow Si and Dave on a tour of the British Isles, during which they will source ingredients unique to each county and go on to cook the local signature dish as well as other recipes. It is due to be broadcast later in the year.
