Rick Stein’s Secret France

Secret France sees Rick travel from Dieppe in the very north of the country, winding his way down to Cassis in the south – always on the look out for exciting new recipes and produce to cook with (or drink). Rick says: “I owe my love of food and restaurants to early trips to Brittany. A cold clear breeze in April with a smell of seaweed on it, a first plateau de fruits de mer – cockles, clams, mussels and oysters -all somehow repeating that fragrant coldness. The produce was exquisite and the memory stays with me.”  Discover more below about each episode, including where Rick visits and what he eats.
