Israel: chicken and egg

tuesday 4th october, 8.00-9.00pm, on bbc 2
israel (travelogue and food programme, presented by david myers and simon “si” king) (5th of 6 episodes in the hairy bikers – chicken and egg series)

In Israel, the Bikers visit the 2,500-year old archaeological remains of the world’s first poultry farm, in Maresha and also get a freaky glimpse into what is next for poultry. They play the locals at their own game by cooking a mouthwatering shakshuka on the beach in super trendy, hipster Tel Aviv and make it their mission to discover if chicken soup really is the Jewish penicillin. The boys make their own Arab street food – chicken shawarma kebabs – in Old Jerusalem and they create their version of a Middle Eastern chicken schnitzel – a dish that has its origins in the food of Europe but is now a popular classic in Israel.”
“Is that not the best backdrop you’ve ever seen for a barbecue? This is not so much a recipe as a sermon on the mount!
