About the show

In each episode they create foodie family feasts, delicious dinner party dishes and luxurious lunches. Everything the Bikers cook will feel like a treat but won’t break the budget.

Over the course of the series the Bikers cook up some budget-busting delights in the home, garden and on the road.

They uncover frugal lessons from history, learn money-saving tricks from the restaurant trade and Michelin-starred chefs, discover a wealth of gourmet but affordable feasts from multi-cultural Britain and share their own wealth of thrifty tips.

At the end of each episode they use everything they have learned to throw a surprise gourmet feast of a life-time for some very deserving people.
