Book Description

2 Oct 2008

Rick Stein's passion for fresh, well-sourced food has taken him from continent to continent, across magnificent shorelines and to the very best produce the coast has to offer. From Fresh grilled cod with shellfish in garlic butter at the tip of St Ives, to Cured red duck breasts with melon, soy and pickled ginger in Sydney Harbour, this collection of over 130 recipes evokes all the pleasure and flavour associated with the coast.

Chapters are organised by region: healthy salads inspired by the Californian ocean, sumptuous starters fit for French cuisine, modern light lunches such as Japanese sashimi and Moroccan tagines, and main courses using fresh fruit, vegetables, fish, meat, poultry and game from the most fertile coastal regions in the world.

There are recipes for classic treats such as Toad-in-the-hole with porcini mushrooms and onion gravy, staple fish masterpieces such as Poached sea trout with sorrel hollandaise, and recipes for tasty favourites from your treasured holiday destinations: Seafood Paella, Goan Curry, Welsh Cawl and Clam Chowder. All this, plus a delicious range of puddings including Hot bread pudding with armagnac sauce, Lemon Possett and Poached pears with mulberries and mascarpone ice cream.

With brand-new recipes and a fresh design, Coast to Coast contains Rick Stein's most popular dishes drawn from many years of travelling the culinary globe. Easy to follow and quick to inspire, this cookbook will bring all the flavour of the coast into the comfort of your own home.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my Favourite Cook Books 19 Aug 2013
Format:Hardcover|Amazon Verified Purchase
There aren't enough superlatives for this book. The concept is excellent. A generous and pretty comprehensive helping of favourite foods from seven distinct geographical regions. Every recipe - even within each chapter - is wonderfully unique, each is clearly carefully selected to deliver a good, comprehensive overview of the regions' veritable cornucopia. They are also very well written; with each one turning out above and beyond my expectations.

As mentioned by other reviewers, this is basically a compilation of best recipes from Rick's preceding books. So for me, this was an excellent introduction. I now also have "Seafood" "French Odyssey" "Mediterranean Escapes" "Far Eastern Odyssey" "Spain" and "India". Alongside these there is very little overlap and lots of nicely contrasting material. For anyone who has all of the preceding books, I imagine this one may be pretty superfluous...

Since buying it a year ago I've been pretty much systematically making my way through its contents. Pizza, Potato curry, Chorizo and Butterbean stew, Broiled Haddock with Succotash, Mushroom Risotto and North Atlantic Prawn Pilaf I've made more times than I can count, with - by now - most of the book's remaining content having made an outing at some point or other. They are all excellent and entirely fool-proof, and a lovely balance is offered between 5-minute preparations and more intricate, work-intensive efforts. The book is also an excellent source of cooking ideas, with many aspects of each recipe easily adapted into a creation of your own.

As for the criticism that ingredients are obscure and hard to get hold of.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality recipes 16 Sep 2011
By C. West
Format:Hardcover|Amazon Verified Purchase
A very good book with a wide range of recipes, and also well laid out. Recommended by a friend who clearly has used his copy extensively - given the amount of stains throughout the book!

I purchased this as a present for a friend's birthday - she was over the moon with the book, and spent Sunday making dinner with recipes from the book. I shall definitely be purchasing this for others come Christmas due to the feedback i've received!

5.0 out of 5 stars Rick is looking gorgeous! 8 Oct 2008
This is the most beautiful of Rick's books so far- I'm a big fan of his recipes and my mouth is watering looking through the photos. The great thing is you just know you're going to get quality recipes- what's so special about this book is the personal touches, introductions to the recipes and stories of his travels round the world.

Enjoy Rick Stein's cookery books....his written style is familiar and so enjoyable....beats all the noisy/in your face chef books out there by a mile.
His relaxed style engages everyone...even the none foodies in my family enjoy his programmes. As for this book, it is a great buy....and I would recommend it as a lovely gift for anyone who is fed up of cooking the same recipes week after week. Enjoy the layout of different regional foods...and again...Rick has me thinking about where to source local foods again....he makes me enjoy my cooking without making it a major task....exactly how it should be....the lamb curry recipe Wow!!! yummy!!!
Love your chicken and asparagus soup Rick....especially made with local Formby asparagus.....

5.0 out of 5 stars For fish lovers the world over! 7 Dec 2008
By K. D. Squire VINE VOICE
Rick stein is a seafood god among men. His worldly travels have inspired generations to cook and too cook with confidence using ingredients not usually on your average menu.

Coast to coast is a great collection of fantastic recipes and there not all fish! Rick's passion for locality, flavour and affordability has created some fantastic meals easiliy acheivable by even the most amature cook. The book is well layed out,clear and precise with fantastic images to make even the driest mouth water with anticipation.

The recipes are easy to follow the ingredients are (dependant on season) readily availible and the end result is nothing but perfection! this book is a great addition to my collection and would be a worthwhile present for any wanabe cook!
