TV CELEBRITY chefs the Hairy Bikers received a traditional English welcome to a country pub in Worcestershire when they were greeted by Morris dancers.

But the popular culinary pair Dave Myers and Si King found more than they expected at the Wildmoor Oak, near Lydiate Ash, Bromsgrove – they discovered a Caribbean party in full swing in the beer garden.

And it wasn’t long before they were being taught to cook Caribbean jerk chicken by the chef Lorenzo Richards.

The Hairy Bikers were filming for their latest cookery series Chicken & Egg, which is currently being broadcast on BBC 2. The series sees the duo biking across Europe, the Middle East and America before returning to the UK.

Dave and Si discover all about Lorenzo’s heritage and what it is like growing up in Birmingham with Jamaican parents, as he prepares and cooks his jerk chicken. They also learn how Caribbean food has been accepted in the UK and grows in popularity – thanks to events like the annual Birmingham Caribbean Festival.

The bikers even tried their hands at limbo dancing and playing the steel drums with Pan Maestro.

Dave Myers said: “I wish I lived closer to Bromsgrove because the Wildmoor Oak could rapidly become my favourite local. Lorenzo is a wonderful chef, a jerk master. It was well worth coming to taste his food – it’s blooming marvellous!”

Episode six of Chicken & Egg, featuring Wildmoor Oak’s chef Lorenzo, will be aired on BBC2 at 8pm on Tuesday October 11. The programme will be shown on the big screen at the pub for anyone who would like to watch it at the place where it was filmed.

Accompanying the series is The Hairy Bikers' latest book Chicken & Egg, featuring a variety of chicken recipes and cooking techniques including Lorenzo’s Caribbean jerk chicken.
