The recipes are divided by day of the weekend — quick and easy for a Friday night supper — Mussels with Bayonne ham to Danish Fish Frikadeller with remoulade; substantial Saturday brunches and lunches — Huevos a la Flamenca to Constantinople artichoke stew; some substantial Saturday evening entertaining including — Halibut Soup with cream, apple and dill to Cote de Boeuf and Meringue with zabaglione semi fredo, followed by Sunday lunch and dinners — Squid Souvlaki and Navarin of lamb. And no weekend would be complete without some coffee and teatime treats – Pateis de nata to Berliner Doughnuts.Rick Stein’s Long Weekends will accompany the second half of the BBC TV series on Prime, screening dates yet to be announced in NZ.
The book includes stunning location photography from around Europe, following in Rick’s footsteps.
