Hairy Bikers' Meals on Wheels
Dave Myers and Simon King seek to revive our British culinary national treasure. In the first episode, Dave and Si address the three biggest problems facing `Meals on Wheels' today - volunteer vacancies, the food and its out-dated/moth-eaten image. After a trip back in time to Welwyn Garden City where it all started in 1943 to help older victims of the Blitz, the Bikers saddle up and head off to Surrey.
Armed with delicious fresh recipes and lashings of their trademark warmth and humour, the Bikers have been breathing new life into Elmbridge council's ailing MOW service. However, the kitchen is struggling to cope with the extra workload created by their new menus and there is a dire shortage of volunteers prepared to deliver the meals. The Bikers need an army of helping hands.
In Slaithwaite, West Yorkshire, Dave and Si find a village that's lost its traditional hot `Meals on Wheels' service. So together with a band of feisty Yorkshire ladies, they set about trying to start a new one of their own from scratch. It's a massive task, but the Bikers are prepared to go all the way to ensure hot fresh meals are once again delivered to Slaithwaite's older people.
Dave and Si are back in West Yorkshire cooking up a storm with the Slaithwaite ladies - proving that with passion, commitment and drive it is possible to reinvent `Meals on Wheels' and give it a real future. Later, the Bikers head back to Elmbridge to find out if all their hard work there has paid off and HRH the Duchess of Cornwall comes to see the work they have been doing and show her support.
