CUISINE REVIEW: The Hairy Bikers Meat Feasts - Si King and Dave Myers

Release Date: 27/08/15
Publisher:  Weidenfeld and Nicolson


There's something about the smell of meat cooking that signals a feast - it's savoury, comforting and tempting. A steak on the grill, a roast in the oven, a casserole bubbling: they make your mouth water.

Si King and Dave Myers, aka the Hairy Bikers, have always been passionate about meat, and this bible is an unadulterated celebration of the fine produce we have available today. MEAT FEASTS includes all their favourite recipes and some new surprises. There are family classics, spicy treats, perfect pies and delicious zingy salads.

Si and Dave love their veggies too, and MEAT FEASTS features some of the very best veg recipes to showcase a Sunday joint or make a little meat of a very long way.

A meaty modern classic, MEAT FEASTS is your one-stop meat cookbook!


I love the Hairy Bikers and whilst I do like to cook different styles of food from Thai to Italian, for comfort food, I always come back to good old traditional British cuisine. It’s the type of food that I love, puts a smile on my face and all round makes me happy on days when I feel a little down.

This title brings a lot of UK favourites to the fore, adds a touch of the exotic (if you want a bit of spice) and does it all with their flair alongside easy to follow instructions keeping it simple for maximum taste. This is real food, not that Haute Cuisine that requires GPS to find it on the plate, but pure gut filling, family satisfying fare.

For me, this is a book that will have a lot of uses and coming into winter, it’s a time when we want comfort, a time to gives that stick to the ribs feel and all round make everyone happy. I can’t wait.
