About the Author
Rick Stein's passion for using good-quality local produce and his talent for creating delicious flavour combinations in his books and restaurants have won him a host of awards, accolades and fans. As well as presenting a number of television series, he has published many best-selling cookery books, including French Odyssey, Coast to Coast, Far Eastern Odyssey, Rick Stein's Spain and Rick Stein's India. Rick has always believed in showcasing local seafood and farm produce in his four restaurants in Padstow, Cornwall, where he also has a seafood cookery school, food shops and a pub in the nearby village of St Merryn. In 2003 Rick was awarded an OBE for services to West Country tourism. He divides his time between Padstow and Australia, where he also has a seafood restaurant by the sea in Mollymook, NSW.

The book is divided into seven parts:
Vegetarian & Sides
and of course his signature - the extras pages, which I personally enjoy a lot!
As I originally come from "around" the region (Bulgaria), many of the dishes, especially those from Greece and Turkey are very similar to dishes in my own country. Most of the recipes are from Turkey and Greece, then Venice and Croatia, and very few, perhaps 4-6 recipes come from Albania. It is a pity, as I expected more Albanian recipes. For me this part of the world (although very close to my birthplace) is still unknown and I was eager to learn more about their food traditions. I still give the book five stars, as it is a compilation of the greatest dishes of the region, presented in a true Rick Stein style! This book for sure won't gather dust on my cookbook shelves!

Please bear in mind that I do admit to being a bit of a Rick Stein fan. So this review may be a bit biased.
Addendum: Having watched the first episode I can comment a little more fully on the structure... In the first episode Rick explains that though he's travelling through each region, his recreations will all take place in a kitchen on a Greek island. The regions covered make more sense with a map, included here for clarity...Read more ›
