Want to know more about the lovely Dave Myers?
Born and bred in Barrow-in-Furness in North West England, Dave Myers' versatile skills have taken him to some unusual places. He worked as a furnace-man in a steelworks whilst a student, to finance a degree and postgraduate studies in Fine Art at Goldsmiths, where he studied egg tempera and the work of the Old Masters. On graduating, Dave joined the BBC as a make-up artist, specialising in prosthetics. He went on to work on numerous feature films and high-profile television series, notably LIVES AND LOVES OF A SHE DEVIL, PRIME SUSPECT and the hit BBC1 series SPOOKS. His career has taken him from Hollywood to the African deserts. He’s also travelled extensively away from work, picking up recipes and cultures almost as fast as he’s made friends all over the world, not the least of whom is Simon King, Dave’s boon travelling companion and the other half of the Hairy Biking duo.
Big hearted, down-to-earth cooks with a love of good food, Si and Dave have been cooking together for more than twenty years. Their television back catalogue includes over 20 series’ including Mums Know Best, Bakeation, Asian Adventure and most recently Chicken & Egg and Comfort Food. Back in 2012, the guys shed more than six stone between them on Hairy Dieters: How to Love Food and Lose Weight. The tie-in paperback book knocked 50 Shades of Grey off the top of the bestsellers charts and sold 1.5 million copies, leading to the launch of online-subscription based weight-loss club: The Hairy Bikers’ Diet Club. The guys have written eighteen books to date, including Perfect Pies, Big Book of Baking and Great Curries. Their most recent publications were Chicken & Egg; a tie-in to the TV series and Go Veggie; the latest edition in The Hairy Dieters series. The Bikers will continue to extend their TV and book catalogue with further series and publications throughout 2017!
