From the mythical heart of Greece, to the Black Sea flavours of Croatia and the Eastern influences of Turkish food, Rick Stein: From Venice to Istanbul will share over 100 recipes inspired by centuries of tradition and history.

Forever influenced by its past as part of the Byzantine Empire, the Eastern Mediterranean stretches from Venice to Albania, to Croatia, Turkey and the shores of Greece, and stands as a gateway between East and West. This melting pot of cultures inspires the unique and exotic character of its cuisine, which Rick Stein blends with his own passion for fabulous produce, fresh seafood and authentic cooking.

Using influences from the Middle East, North Africa and the Balkans, Rick will share recipes such as garlic shrimps with soft polenta, stuffed squash leaves, and yoghurt baked lamb. Accompanying the major BBC One series, Rick Stein: From Venice to Istanbul is a visually stunning collection of inspiring recipes to evoke the magic of the Byzantine Empire at home.

          Comments about Rick Stein's Middle East:

          I think I'll run out of time to attempt all the fabulous recipes in this book, though a better option would be to travel to the places Rick Stein visited and try the various cuisines for myself. Two problems with this - money, and, if I had it, I might never come home.

              The cover of this glorious book is just a sheer delight.When you look behind the loose jacket you get a wonderful surprise as the hard cover is decorated to look like Greek tiles. Recipes are easy to follow & those we've tried are delicious

                    It is wonderful to follow the recipes when watching the series 'Venice to Istanbul'. I have made many of the dishes in this book. Great Med foods.

                    This book is a beautiful re-creation of the TV series of Rick Stein's travels through the Middle East. It feels like he is talking to you as you read each recipe. He uses ingredients that we can all access with wonderful results.
