Rick Stein, one of the UK's most popular and respected chefs, opens your eyes to the wealth of produce available on your doorstep with his book, "Rick Stein's Food Heroes". Now available for the first time in paperback, as well as hardback, this book is both an inspirational collection of recipes and a delightful celebration of British ingredients and those who create them. Rick has always encouraged us to think carefully about the food we eat, to seek out the best-quality ingredients and to cook them simply. In his accompanying TV series, he travelled around Britain, searching out the best of all British produce, from bread to beer and lamb to cheese. The book contains over 100 recipes, including all those broadcast on BBC2. In addition to a host of brand new recipes (including Smoked Duck Breast Salad with New Potatoes and Fresh Raspberry Tart with Hazelnut and Coconut Pastry), Rick adds his own variations on traditional dishes, such as The Definitive Welsh Rarebit.
