One of our favourite TV chefs is back with a memorable new food odyssey as he explores the flavours of the Eastern Mediterranean. His new book, From Venice to Istanbul, accompanies a major BBC TWO series and takes us on a mouth-watering journey from Venice through Greece, Croatia and Albania to Turkey and beyond.
Rick Stein is a vivacious and captivating speaker and this will be an extremely entertaining evening as he demonstrates dishes from the book and answers questions from the audience.
