Magic of the Mediterranean with Rick Stein & Esk Valley Wines
Rick Stein needs little introduction to his many fans worldwide. His passion for using quality ingredients and local produce and his talent for creating delicious flavour combinations in his books, TV series’ and restaurants have won him a host of accolades and fans. He’s also great fun, and one of the most charming chef’s you’d ever want to meet.
