Cooking doesn’t get any hairier than this – broadcaster, journalist, raconteur and enthusiastic chef Hardeep Singh Kohli is to join The Hairy Bikers as the celebrity studio guest on their popular new show The Hairy Bikers Cook Off.
Hardeep, who was recently appointed an Official Ambassador for Scotland’s Year of Food and Drink, said: “I’ve always been an admirer of The Hairy Bikers so it was great to get a chance to cook alongside them – and I have it on good authority that my guest appearance marked the first time in broadcasting history that three bearded men have cooked together on the BBC!”
Hardeep, who was runner-up on the first series of Celebrity Masterchef, will cook a Braised Oxtail Curry with a grapefruit and mint salad on the show.
Sounds delicious – but what did The Hairy Bikers make of it? Well, viewers can find out for themselves when the hairiest episode of The Hairy Bikers Cook Off is shown on BBC2 on Friday 12 November at 5.15pm.
