The Hairy Bikers arrive in Thailand, where people say it is impossible to eat badly. They are in Bangkok and the central plains, where much of the Thai cuisine we are familiar with comes from. Here they discover why Bangkok is the street food capital of the world and they help serve up some school dinners, Thai style. Heading out of Bangkok, they join some paddy field workers and find out how rice is grown
The Hairy Bikers also travel to the beaches of the south and the mountains of the north to discover how Thailand’s multicultural history and its place at the heart of the spice trade has created a rich and varied cuisine. They meet a coconut-picking monkey, head out to sea during the monsoon for what turns out to be a rather nerve-wracking fishing expedition, and they cook their own jungle curry for a remote hill tribe.
