Representing Suffolk and beating the Bikers in “The Hairy Bikers’ Tour of Britain”
April 23, 2009
Motorcycle-riding cookery experts The Hairy Bikers visited The Bildeston Crown in 2009, while filming 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. At each stop the bikers had a “cook off” with a well-known local restaurant chef, in which they compete to create a new dish from the county’s produce.
For Suffolk, independent production company Cactus TV, which is behind the programme, chose The Bildeston Crown and chef Chris Lee to take up the duo’s challenge….which Chris did …and won!
