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.

A must for Turkish cuisine lovers


The author 'Rick Stein' travels the world in his TV series. He not only critiques food, but also engages with it's people, culture and their produce. I love Turkish food and Rick has not disappointed me. Fantastic photography and insights in Turkish culture. Great read.

Beauitful book and excellent service


The book was purchased as a birthday gift for my daughter who is currently in Europe and has travelled through Istanbul to Venice. Thought this would be a nice momento of her travels and a reference for new recipes to try. Beautifully presented book. The service and delivery from Booktopia was exceptional as I live in Regional NSW. Would recommend the book and Booktopia to my family and friends.



Love Rick Stein


I love this cookbook...use it all the time



All time favourite.


Best cook book I have ever had. Constantly trying new recipes and redoing older ones. Lovely lamb dishes.

I have just starting using this beautiful book


This is a beautifully presented cook book with easy to follow instructions and mouth watering pictures - makes you want to get in the kitchen and try something new.

Mouth watering!


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.

Great book to keep forever


Love this book it's very easy to read and has more information at the end which helps explain some of the ingredients.

Rick Stein at his best


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

Another fabulous book from Rick!


This is the book from Rick Stein's recent TV series. It was just as beautifully illustrated as his previous cook books - and I have them all.
