Eerste aflevering. Dave Myers' Egypt: Cooking show. Hairy Biker Dave Myers travels to Egypt, home to some of the oldest recipes known to man.
From the fantastic street food of Cairo to a family feast 500 miles south in ancient Aswan, Dave voyages up the Nile to find the origins of some of our favourite dishes. On his adventure, Dave fulfils a dream to visit the pyramids of Giza and learns that they were built by labour fed on the humble loaf.
He goes to the lush oasis of Al Fayoum in search of a dish with mythical properties and, on the banks of the River Nile, discovers a place where man first turned to farming. Venturing further into the land of the pharaohs, Dave discovers the origins of baking and living proof of a food that changed the eating habits of the planet.
To mark the end of his journey, Dave is invited by a family of Nubians for a feast to celebrate the end of Eid al-Adha. He helps prepare a traditional meal that has become legendary across the entire Arab world and receives hospitality he will never forget.
