As always, a pleasure to watch Keith Floyd. This series is well produced, but I share the slight frustration of one or two other reviewers at the lack of titles - a bit like reading a book without the cover. I believe that the series was originally broadcast on Channel Five. It's a bit disconcerting to see Floyd perform the whole of the first episode without a glass, but as the series progresses he reverts to his usual form (where the culture of the country he is visiting permits)! The colour is occasionally a bit wishy-washy, but the sound is better than on many a DVD. Well worth a watch and a wallow.

A marvellous set of part travelogue, part cookery show. Floyd is often dismissed as being simply a drunkard, knocking up food in nice locations and rambling on with his camera crew. Interestingly though, you'll often see him cited as a major influence on modern chefs.
This series includes some more unusual dishes from around the med, and encompasses more than just Italy, Spain and Greece - He goes round Turkey, and North Africa too.
Another thing about Floyd is that he comes across a bit 1950s Englishman when dealing with "the natives" but it is clear that there is an amazing amount of affection for people involved in country life and food production.
Theme music a bit dated though!!

Keith was the first TV chef I watched back in the 80's/90's. He took the viewers to Provence, travelled round in an old Citreon and showed us how to be passionate about cooking especially with fresh ingredients. His 'live life to the full' character came across and the world is worse off now he has gone. I believe he created the TV chef genre that we see today. R.I.P. Keith ......

All that sunshine, beautiful scenery, good food and Floyds humour. An absolute must for any fans of cooking or travel, in my humble opinion. I usually watch the repeats of all his travels on the freeview channels but if I need a bit of sunshine amongst all this rain, out comes Mr F "Around the Med"!

We enjoyed the dvd for 3 reasons. Keith is very entertaining, the food delicious and the scenery lovely. Good value as it encompasses quite a few different areas of the mediterranean
