Approach the Mediterranean Sea from any direction and you know you've entered a different world. Rick Stein's culinary odyssey takes in both the islands and coast of this remarkable region.

Travelling often by public ferry boat, and encountering extraodinary people along the way, Rick has sought out the very best of the region's food. This is a land where culinary trends are looked down upon. What matters is how good the lemons are this year and who is pressing the best olive oil. Rick's pick of more than 100 recipes includes Catalan Grilled Stuffed Mussels, Feta and Mint Pastries, Puglian Fava Bean Puree, Corsican Oysters with a Pernod and Tarragon Dressing, Moroccan Chicken with Preserved Lemon and Olives, Sicilian Orange Cake and Corfiot Rice Pudding.

Fully illustrated with beautiful food photography by Earl Carter and landscape photography by Craig Easton, Rick Stein's Mediterranean is a fascinating journey into a rich and varied culinary heritage.

MEDIA REVIEWS

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 *
