Rick Stein's Food Heroes
Rick Stein's Food Heroes is a cooking program that takes viewers on a gastronomic tour of the length and breadth of Britain by the hand of English celebrity chef, restaurateur and television presenter Rick Stein and his loyal sidekick dog Chalky. Stein travels around the country in search of quality British produce while sharing stories and recipes with viewers throughout. Rick Stein initially rose to fame as the owner and manager of the Stein hotel and restaurant business in Padstow in the United Kingdom. His gastronomic and hospitality empire has since then grown into a group containing more than a dozen restaurants in Great Britain, as well as two venues in New South Wales, Australia. On top of that, he is a prolific writer of cooking books, including Gourmand World Cookbook Award winner Rick Stein's Food Heroes.
