The wry, perceptive and brilliantly evocative memoir of one of Britain's best-loved cooks

About the Author

Rick Stein's passion for using good-quality local produce and his talent for creating delicious flavour combinations in his books and restaurants have won him a host of awards, accolades and fans. As well as presenting a number of television series, he has published many best-selling cookery books, including French Odyssey, Coast to Coast, Far Eastern Odyssey and Rick Stein's Spain.

Rick is a firm supporter of sustainable fishing techniques and farming, which he strives to maintain in Padstow, Cornwall, where he runs an acclaimed restaurant and a seafood cookery school, as well as a delicatessen, patisserie and hotel. In 2003 Rick was awarded an OBE for services to West Country tourism. He divides his time between Padstow and Australia, which he regards as his second home. Rick and his wife Sarah are co-owners of Rick Stein at Bannisters, Mollymook, NSW.

Reviews

"Stein's brilliant memoir traces his halcyon days spent in Australia, culminating on his home turf, Cornwall." -- The Daily Telegraph * The Daily Telegraph *
"Dealing with his father's suicide by heading for the outback, catching a freighter from New Zealand to New York, running a nightclub: Stein has plenty to talk about before he gets to fish restaurants in Padstow and becoming a fixture of food TV. His fine autobiography never shies away from that defining tragedy and how it rippled through his life, even revealing his sudden need, last summer, to swim to the Cornish cliffs where his dad died." -- Allan Jenkins and Gareth Grundy * The Observer Food Monthly *
