Publisher Description

Published to accompany Rick Stein's new ten-part television series for BBC2, this new book starts where FRENCH ODYSSEY left off -at the mouth of the Rhone in the port of Marseilles. Reluctantly abandoning his idyllic canal boat, the Anjodi, Rick takes to the public ferry system which plies between the islands and coastlines of the Mediterranean.The book contains over 100 recipes divided by types of ingredient or types of dish -from mezze and tapas to calamari and couscous. Although Mediterranean food is always considered to be very healthy, by virtue of its ingredients, Rick will not shy from luxurious ice creams and sticky pastries and the book will also include basic recipes, accompaniments and sauces. He introduces the book with a diary of his gastronomic journey, recounting the many interesting characters and interesting dishes he discovered en route.Mediterranean food is first and foremost the simple cooking of simple ingredients so it translates extremely well into everyday dishes that cooks of all levels will enjoy making, and above all, eating.

Review

"His repertoire of recipe books, restaurants and television programmes - not to mention an inexhaustible knowledge and infectious passion on the subject - have all helped him bring fish to the culinary forefront in the UK. " Daily Express " For me he is the nonpareil telly chef because he always makes me drool like a slobberhound...Stein is like a plateful of smoked haddock, poached egg and mashed potatoes, a combination that is both unbeatably satisfying and fun. " -- Kathryn Flett Observer Food Monthly "An antipasti antidote to the greasy chips and soggy anorak of an excuse for summer that we've had to put with, every page of this book is a ray of sunshine. Beautiful photographs of bell towers in Corfu and Corsican coastlines will make you wish you were born the child of a peasant fisherman, while the food will make make you rejoice for your KitchenAid mixer and that Global knife collection. Packed full of mouth-watering delights like Sicilian rice balls with ham, peas, saffron and provolone cheese, grilled stuffed mussels from Catalonia and a decent pudding section, featuring Moroccan orange salad and a fabulous chocolate and ricotta tart, this book will transport you to where the living is easy and the cooking is simple and hearty. The summer you wished you'd had - in hardback." -- Ellie Crompton Heat Magazine 20070901
