David Pritchard and a Denham Production film crew headed off east on an epic journey of exploration and culinary discovery. The series filmed in High Definition features stunning locations in Sri Lnka, Bangladesh, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia and Indonesia. These locations have provided Crocodile Musical Director Malcolm Ironton with a broad canvas to create and develop a selection of soundtrack music of unique diversity. Working closely with Director David Pritchard, Malcolm's brief was to create soundtrack music that will reflect the tastes and sounds of the jungle, street markets and river journeys, back streets and beaches discovered by Rick. This collection of original soundtrack music compliments the tantalizing dishes and ingredients that Rick discovers during this journey and will leave the listener with an appetite for more.
Beautifully put together, informative book. Easy to follow
Some ingredients difficult to get hold of. Lack of serving suggestions

Manufacturer's product description
Rick Stein's Far Eastern Odyssey is an epic culinary journey along rivers, through jungles and around coastlines. Along the way, Rick visits traditional family-run restaurants, street vendors, floating markets, night markets, fishing villages, and the local cinnamon and rice farmers to learn about the authentic food of the Far East, and to sample the delicious spectrum of exotic flavours. In Vietnam he tracks down the best recipe for pho, a searing soup of vegetables, shrimp, chilli and fresh mint; in Cambodia he makes kroeung, a kind of aromatic curry; and he samples jhol, a light fish stew, in Bangladesh. Travelling on through Thailand, Sri Lanka, Malaysia and Indonesia, he'll enjoy (and show us how to make) an array of inspired dishes.In this tie-in cookery book to the series, Rick shares his new-found knowledge, recreating the tantalizing food of his travels and capturing on the plate the rich and varying cultures of the Far East. With over 150 new recipes and breathtaking on-location photography, this book evokes the magic of bustling markets, exotic locations and exciting flavours.
