Hairy Bikers at Shrewsbury Flower Show

Hairy Bikers Dave & Si to attend this years Shrewsbury Flower Show

Hairy Bikers Dave & Si to attend this years Shrewsbury Flower Show

This weekend sees some very special food demos at the 123rd Shrewsbury Flower Show. The Hairy Bikers, AKA Dave and Si are taking a break from roaming the roads of the world on their motorbikes in search of culinary adventures, to appear in the Marches Food Hall, on Friday 13th & Saturday 14th August, where their infectious enthusiasm and natural charm will be in evidence as they present three cookery demonstrations in the purpose built Cookery Theatre each day. They will also be supported  by some ‘Local Hereos’ under the guise of our very own chefs from Shropshire.

Dave and Si commented: “It’s great to be revisiting Shropshire, especially an event as colourful as the Shrewsbury Flower Show where people can demonstrate local crafts and skills. We will visit local food producers at the show and cook some traditional favourites on location in front of an audience and hope to get lots of feedback.”

‘Local Heroes’ under the guise of Chefs Stuart Phillip’s, of the renowned Hundred House Hotel and Restaurant near Telford, and innovative Shropshire based Thai Chef Suree Coates will also be ‘warming up’ the Hairy Bikers on both days with their creative ‘Cooking with flowers, and local herbs, with Thai spices’ demos.

Stuart comments “We use many flowers from our herb gardens, but people don’t realise how many flowers they can use from their own gardens to spice up dishes both in taste, and visual appeal, we hope to give a few hints and tips to the horticulturalists, and foodies at the show.”

Suree added “Thai food is all about fresh ingredients and flavour, and at the King and Thai we are keen to bring as much of the locality to each dish, and i especially like carving flowers from local fruit and veg, so will be showing a few tricks on this too – i am really looking forward to my first ‘big demo’ with Stuart”

Over the past 123 years, the Shrewsbury Flower Show has developed to become much more than a flower show. In addition to its three million blooms, outdoor show gardens and large horticultural section, there is a large events arena featuring equestrian competitions and displays, extensive children’s entertainment, large variety of exhibitors from arts and crafts to home baking and even a traditional bees and honey section for the growing number of people establishing their own apiaries (Bee hives).

The show offers many exhibits for foodies and of course horticulturalists, as well as demos, and fireworks in the evening.
