A mouth-watering mix of fresh, local food, beautiful landscapes and inspirational people - with incredible recipes from one of the nation's leading chefs.
Having based his own reputation on a passion for quality produce, Rick Stein's gastronomic tour finds him searching for those who put taste and quality above all else. With their help he creates dishes that showcase the truly great foods of the nation.
From crabs in Cornwall to haggis in Scotland's Highlands, Rick Stein and his dog, Chalky, travel the length and breadth of the country to unearth the nation's best kept secrets - homegrown, traditional and local culinary delights. Along the way he meets cheese makers, ham curers, brewers, asparagus growers, pie makers and many other amazing characters who are dedicated to providing the best produce and ingredients.
And, of course, Rick can't resist utilising them in his own wonderfully-flavoured, simple cooking style, turning his hand to everything from Smoked Duck Breast Salad with New Potatoes to Fresh Raspberry Tart with Hazelnut and Coconut Pastry. Rick also includes his own variations on more traditional dishes, such as Welsh Rarebit and Bread and Butter Pudding.
