Hairy Biker Dave Myers is set to ride into the 2019 Southport Flower Show to share some of his top tips for outdoor cooking.

The celebrity chef will be revving up some of his favourite summertime recipes as he appears in the cookery theatre at Southport on Sunday 18th August.

Dave is known to millions of TV viewers for his two-wheeled culinary tours of the globe as one half of the Hairy Bikers.

Along with his co-presenter Si King, Dave has fronted several top-rated TV series and appeared in the kitchens on prime time shows including This Morning, The One Show and Lorraine.

As well as being a regular feature on cookery shows, Dave has appeared on Mastermind, Celebrity Chase and Who Wants To Be A Millionaire - and was a contestant on 2013 Strictly Come Dancing.

The Hairy Bikers have also published more than a dozen cookery books during a career spanning more than 20 years. Their book Hairy Dieters: How to Love Food and Lose Weight sold 1.5 million copies.

Dave and Si have recently been filming their latest TV series in the USA - The Hairy Bikers Ride Route 66 - which will be screened on BBC Two later in the year.

But Lancashire-born Dave will be much closer to home when he heads to the Southport Flower Show.

Southport is celebrating its 90th anniversary this year with one of the biggest garden parties in Britain and Dave will join the fun in the cookery theatre.

He said: “I’m really looking forward to my first Southport Flower Show in August.
“It’s slap bang in the middle of British BBQ season so I’ll be demonstrating some of the best ways to cook outdoors for a party in the garden.”

The Food Village at Southport will feature over 50 gourmet producers offering the opportunity to sample and buy organic and artisan produce.

The full working kitchen where celebrity chefs demonstrate their skills and signature dishes is compered by Brian Mellor.

General Manager Ray Roukin said: “We are very excited to welcome Dave Myers to Southport this summer.

“He brings a wealth of experience, skill and expertise gained from touring the world filming the hugely popular Hairy Bikers shows.

“We are sure Dave’s cookery demonstrations will be a highlight of the show for visitors this year.”
