A great TV series though!
on 18 November 2002
I like Rick Stein - a lot. He comes across as being passionate about food and it's production. I would go so far as to say that 'Food Heroes' was the best ever TV 'cookery' program ever!
So what's the problem with the book. There are two in my opinion. They say that you taste food with your eyes before you eat. The book therefore numbs all interest in cooking two thirds of the recipes included as there is no photo of what the dish should look like on the plate. I am sure that myself and thousands like me who have bought this book will not try those recipes without a photo. This is a big shame. My second gripe is that the names and address of the food heroes as well as being catalogued by type of produce should have been listed by geographic area.
Can't wait for his next TV series though.
