Reviews (1) of Rick Stein: From Venice to Istanbul

A very enjoyable series. - Rick Stein: From Venice to Istanbul review by George

Spoiler Alert

As ever, Rick Stein makes a very enjoyable travelling companion. He not only enjoys food, especially fish, but always enjoys meeting the people who cook it for the delight of their customers. Other than Albania, still relatively unknown, this trip took in places many of us have visited and enjoyed, such as Venice, Istanbul, Split and many places in Greece. He is always enthusiastic and will suddenly exclaim to a restaurateur "I do like you", so it makes it very personal. The production team also go to a lot of trouble in finding interesting and very individual restaurants, often, as in Albania, in really out-of-the-way spots. Do find us some Rick Stein journeys.
