Season 01, Episode 03 — “Morocco”
Chicken was barely eaten in North Africa before the 1970s and now it is the most eaten meat in Morocco. In Tetouan, the gastronomical and poultry capital of the country, the boys experience the full extent of Spanish and Moorish influences on Moroccan cuisine. In the mountains north of Fez, Dave and Si cook a chicken tagine with preserved lemons and olives for some rebel Berbers, before heading into the city itself where they make rose and pistachio ice cream to cool down after a visit to a Hamman. The boys join a hen(na!) party after which they are taught how to make the special pastry for their piece de resistance, chicken pastilla pie.
The Hairy Bikers are on a mission to find the best chicken and egg recipes in the world. Biking across Europe, the Middle East and America, the boys celebrate the versatility of both chicken and egg.
