Hi.

Welcome to Desert Island Dishes. The official website for the weekly podcast where chef Margie Broadhead talks to a special guest about their life with food.

Here you will find conversations with a whole range of different people discussing their Desert Island Dishes.

The act of sharing one’s favourite dishes is both deeply personal and fascinating. Margie is able to reveal a different side to the guest being interviewed and find out about much more than the dishes that have shaped their lives.

We will find out about their favourite childhood dishes, the dishes they eat the most often, and the dishes that mean the most to them. Of course we will also discover what their last dish would be before being cast off to the desert island. 

Each week Margie will select one of the guest's Desert Island Dishes to use as inspiration to create a recipe around. There are already lots of delicious recipes for you to look through and to inspire your cooking.

Enjoy! x

EPISODE 47: THE HAIRY BIKERS: TV CHEFS & COOKBOOK AUTHORS

EPISODE 47: THE HAIRY BIKERS: TV CHEFS & COOKBOOK AUTHORS

My guests today are The Hairy Bikers, whose real names are Dave Myers and Simon King. 

Dave previously worked as a make-up artist, for the BBC where he specialised in prosthetics. Si worked for many years as an Assistant Director and Locations Manager for film and television, including the Harry Potter films.

The pair met on the set of a TV drama 23 years ago and discovered that they found they shared a love of riding motorbikes, cooking – and eating. Since then their popularly has soared, they have gone on to have countess TV shows and they have written more than 20 successful cookbooks which is pretty impressive! 

Desert island dish:

starter: Italian Salumi 

Main Tournedos Rossini 

Pudding: banana crème brulee and cheese board 

Luxury item: 

Dave: motorbike

Si: Sharp knives and some string

I definitely had a little fan girl moment trying to invite myself to supper – pretty sure I wanted to nominate myself to be the 3rd hairy biker – but I don’t quite have the beard for it…
