Rick Stein’s Long Weekends

In 2016, Rick Stein embarked on a series of weekend culinary adventures around Europe in search of good food, lovely wine and brilliant recipes – Rick Stein’s Long Weekends. On his adventures, Rick explores Bordeaux, Berlin, Reykjavik, Vienna, Bologna, Copenhagen, Cadiz, Lisbon, Thessaloniki and Palermo.

During the series and accompanying Long Weekends book, Rick inspires in two ways; as a travel guide, to inspire you to go out and discover these wonderful places yourself but equally. why not make time to have a long weekend at home to cook for family and friends. The recipes are divided by day of the weekend – quick and easy for a Friday night supper; substantial Saturday brunches and lunches; some substantial Saturday evening entertaining, followed by Sunday lunch and dinners. And no weekend would be complete without some coffee and teatime treats – Pateis de nata to Berliner Doughnuts.
