Inspired by ‘good food that stays in the memory for a long time, sometimes forever’, Rick Stein journeys across the Mediterranean, visiting islands and places which radiate a vibrant sense of individuality through their spirit, history and food.
From spices and perfumes to the lavish use of wine and herbs, Mediterranean food is a large culinary mosaic full of colour, taste and smell created by the Arabs, Greeks, Italians, Spanish and Turks.
Join Rick Stein’s culinary odyssey as he travels from Corsica to Crete, straight through the very cradle of cooking in the western world.
In this first episode of Rick Stein’s Mediterranean Escapes, the chef travels to the beautiful islands of Corsica and Sardinia, close to Italy, to discover more of their mouth-watering recipes and traditions.
Furthermore, we’ll also get a chance to see how their Mediterranean cheese and sausages are made.
