Rick Stein's Taste Of The Sea [VHS] <b>VHS</b> ~ Rick Stein
18 of 18 people found the following review helpful
Rick isn't a celebrity chef, he is a champion of food, and this delicious video isn't about cooking, it's about so much more. It's a homage to England and the sea, to its people and their love of fish and fishing.

In the time of the Great Rebellion, Sir Hugo Baskerville, a cruel and tyrannical cad, kidnaps a village girl and imprisons her within his great Hall. She escapes, fleeing on foot across the moonlit, desolate moors. Seeing her gone, Sir Hugo gives chase on horseback. He and the girl are later discovered by his friends - the girl has died of fright while he lies dead upon the ground with a hellish hound tearing at his throat. We are told that one man died that night from what he'd seen.
From this gruesome event the legend is born. A curse now hangs over the Baskerville family like the sword of Damocles. The inhabitants of Baskerville Hall are said to meet bloody and suspicious deaths… Read more
