A paperback edition of Keith Floyd’s bestselling book which accompanied the television series of the same name. Floyd tours around the Mediterranean countries, looking at the different cuisines, lifestyles and countries, and cooking as he goes. In Floyd around the Med, Keith Floyd shares his experiences of travelling around the Mediterranean, exporing the food, drink and people of each region. He mixes with the glamorous jet-setters of Monte Carlo, endures a vertical mule ride in the Greek Islands, and shares wine with the monks of Saint Honorat off the Riviera coast. He barters in Turkish bazaars and Tunisian souks, explores undiscovered pueblos of Spain, checks out the North African coast and shares pink gins with the ex-pats of Marbella. And in each place of course Floyd cooks up delicious dishes using local produce. The countries he visits are Greece, France, Spain, Turkey, Morocco, Tunisia and Egypt.
About the Author
Keith Floyd was born in 1943 and educated at Wellington School, Somerset. Until his death in 2009 Keith devoted his life to cooking, except for a few brief excursions into the army and the antiques and wine trades. He presented 14 highly successful television cookery and travel series, and was the author of 15 bestselling books. When not hurtling around the world, he spent his time fishing and sailing in Marbella, Spain.
Loved the TV series – a great travelogue in my fav part of the world with Keith playing up to the camera in top form. It was the cradle of civilisation – until Floyd got there! This book contains all those snapshots anecdotes and musings which made the TV so watchable plus the great recipes. I tried some of these and they turned out very well. I am no cook and I need a giant fuse to get me into the kitchen – but anything hearty, tasty and fairly straightforward will set me off. The Greek section was my battleground and I was victorious with Beef Stifado, Saute of Spring Lamb with Apricots and others. A certain West Country chef and celebrity gave me a bit of help. If you are looking down Keith – thank you very much.
