The Hairy Bikers seek out the authentic flavours of the Mediterranean.
The Hairy Bikers go off the beaten track in search of authentic flavours of Italy, from simple, local ingredients to spicy ‘nduja pate and some of the best gelato to be found.
Hairy Bikers’ Mediterranean Adventure ep.1 dishes:
1. Calabrian pork ribs
This flavoursome pork rib roast is cut from pork belly still on the bone. Perfect for marinating and then cooking low and slow before a quick grill or go on the barbecue.
2. Stuffed aubergines
A great example of ‘cucina povera’ (kitchen of the poor), simple, yet flavoursome peasant-style Italian cooking at its best.
3. Cialledda salad
Cold bread salad may not sound very appealing in English, but translated into Italian, with lovely ripe tomatoes, garlic, olives, basil and red onion, now you’re talking!
4. Grilled swordfish
This light summery dish of grilled swordfish looks effortless when you have friends over.
