I love his books, but there is a small pity - not all recipes have a picture of the finished dish. So it sometimes takes a bit of a guess work to see if you have got the dish quite right unless you have watched the programme on telly. But now we don't have to worry about it any more.
I do know that some poeple were a little puzzled / annoyed, and I did feel the same when, in this programme, he highly praised French cuisine and by contrast slugged off Britain and its food culture a little ... specially this programme was made right after his "Food Heroes in Britain" where he had praised British produce and producers.
However, in real life, we appreciate both French and traditional British cuisine at the same time, don't we? You really cannot tell which is better as they both have its own charm. What could possibly be better than having a wonderful British Pub lunch on a sunny Sunday afternoon that is followed by a strong French coffee in a cafe with Sunday paper? We mix the very best of theses two different cuisines to enjoy life.
I loved this programme when I saw it on TV - this is one of the best he has ever done. Each scene is so beautifully shot, and it is plain to see that he was enjoying filming this programme - as a matter of a fact, the original idea of "French Odyssey" was tabled to BBC by Rich himself.Read more ›
The food that he prepares during each episode is, as always, wonderful but what stands out is the journey that Rick has through the wonderful South Western French countryside and the people he meets on the way. The whole journey unfolds like a storybook rather than a cookery programme and as indeed the title suggests, it is most certainly an Odyssey and so much better than his previous Seafood Odyssey which took him to various places around the world.
If you want to escape from the hum-drum for a few hours then throw this DVD in the player and relax with a glass of "the red stuff" in one hand and the DVD remote control in the other as you will want to replay all those glorious bits of food and France again and again!
