Double-bill of cookery series from top chef Rick Stein. In 'Food Heroes', Rick undertakes a culinary tour of the UK, picking up local dishes such as Cornish crab and cream soup, to Welsh lamb with honey and rosemary. Rick also takes to time to meet some of the unsung food heroes in Britain, still making food in traditional ways. In 'Food Heroes: Another Helping', Rick continues his tour of the country in search of the best local dishes.

For anyone with a real interest in the slow food movement or just generally interested in how real, quality food is produced this series is fascinating.
Rick Stein travels around the whole of the British Isles and meets local small producers of high quality produce (from cheese to meat to vegetables) and then shows how to cook using the product as one of the ingredients.
As is ever the way with such programmes they are not perfect. Rick's ranting about the lack of support for small producers is fairly repetitive but is a minor downside. The only real criticizm I could level at this is that although Rick spends a lot of time complaining about "fancy foreign food" being all that he can get in many of the hotels he stays in, a great number of the recipes he cooks seem to amount to the same "fancy foreign food" that he is complaining about. Personally I like the fancy foreign food so don't have a problem with it save that I can't understand why he and his producer/director couldn't see the anomoly themselves.
That aside this is something I've watched again and again and I continue to be fascinated by the content and charmed by Rick Stein who is incredibly enthusiastic, knowledgeable and charming throughout.
His outburst at the state of the steak he is served in one chain hotel is particularly amusing!

A true delight to watch. Not only does Rick cook up some brilliant,traditional food, he also explores where this food comes from. Very different from the other "cookery DVD's" out there, Rick has passion and enthusiasm for what he is doing. With his dear,faithfull companion Chalky the Jack Russel Terrier, Rick has made a programme that is really about the heart of traditioanl British food. The original music composed for the series is outstanding, and the photography is clear. A fantastic buy.

An excellent DVD set of the original series and another helping. Ordinary, wholesome food that can be cooked by anyone. The only downside is that the BBC has decided to miss off the last 2 programmes of the 'another helping' shame on you beeb

I borrowed this from a friend and after watching it, I knew I had to buy it. It is like taking a vacation to the UK. The scenery is fantastic. The interviews are well chosen to showcase the local produce and food and the recipes look realistic and scrumptous. My only suggestion would be that I would have paid extra if there had been the ability to link to a written version of the recipes that he cooked during the segments. These days, I prefer digital to paper resources.

only ever having seen a couple of episodes of food heroes, it has been a joy to watch these programmes over and over again.
They are always much , much more than cooking and ingredients programmes, the inter actiion with some of the characters in the series and his litery quotes and his genuine passion for the british products is joy to see.
yes, maybe there is slightly too many foreign recipes but this does not detract from the enjoyment.
This has made me relise (even though i now live abroad) that myself and the majority of the british public have been short changing ourselves by not supporting the local quality producers and not appreciating the history and variety of the produce which with a little effort is available to us.
I think Ricks series iis one will keep returning to and the recipes i will be attempting.
Many thanks.

There's still something of the little boy in Rick Stein. He presents his programs with such enthusiam & passion that it becomes positively infectious and irresistable.

This excellent collection of the two Food Heroes series showcases the best of British produce and how to do it justice.

After watching these dvd's you will be left with the impression that Stein admires and respects the producers as much as he does their produce and in these days of ever tighter margins for farmers it's so refreshing to see.

The books are great too!

I am not a fan of cookery programmes, but this was recommended to me as being much more than that, and I was not disappointed.

It is perfect to curl up to on a rainy Sunday afternoon as Rick Stein is so relaxing to watch. His presentation skills are such a pleasure compared to some of the more "enthusiastic" TV chefs. He cooks beautiful locally sourced produce and encourages us to look at what is available all around us in the UK, especially at the farmers markets.

I loved his guilty little boy expression when he added salt, as if to say "I know I shouldn't but I'm doing it anyway", and the smuggling of his little dog Chalky into a "no dogs" hotel was hilarious.

I would recommend Rick Stein and give this DVD a deserved 5 stars.
