Well worth the wait, a truely memorable read, 27 Sept. 2013
A slowish start,but I suppose most early life stories are the same.The true character of Rick Stein comes into being, a hard working,trying everything man who eventually reaps just rewards. The book also reflects his weaknesses and fears, not always the man you have seen so confidently on the tv screen.
