Rick Stein, Coast To Coast

Preview by Jack Foley

RICK Stein’s passion for fresh, well-sourced food is well known and has taken him from continent to continent, across magnificent shorelines on his quest to find the very best of local recipes and produce.

In his new book, Coast to Coast, he has made a personal selection of over 150 of his favourite recipes gathered from his travels at home and away.

Organised by region Coast to Coast features recipes from Britain and Ireland; Western Europe; The Mediterranean and Middle East; India; The Far East; Australia & New Zealand and the Americas, each of these sections is introduced by Rick with personal travel tales, why he has chosen these particular recipes and details about the best ingredients, as well as being illustrated throughout with beautiful photographs.

From classic steak pasties on the cliffs of Cornwall to cured duck breasts with melon, soy and pickled ginger in Sydney Harbour this new collection of recipes will inspire and thrill.

Commenting on the inspiration behind it, Stein says: “I’m just someone with enthusiasm for food and a curiosity that’s sent me sniffing around all over the place looking for lovely dishes in all corners of the globe…”

The book was published by BBC Books on October 2, 2008, costing £20.
