Rick Stein’s Span­ish Christ­mas

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Tues­day, 8.30pm, ABC1 Can you get too much of a good thing? This week we are also treated to Rick Stein’s Cornish Christ­mas, again, on pay-TV. Don’t get me wrong, I think Stein is one of the best tele­vi­sion chefs. It’s just that he is a tad over­ex­posed. Though not yet in Stephen Fry’s league, there sure has been a lot of Stein on the box lately. The good news, as Stein watch­ers will have guessed, is that this fol­lows on di­rectly from the re­cent ABC se­ries A Taste of Spain. In fact, it is a Christ­mas party at Stein’s Lon­don base for all the peo­ple who took part in the Span­ish se­ries. Now don’t wince like that. It does sound self-in­dul­gent but I prom­ise you won’t be made to feel like a child peer­ing through the win­dow as the clever, rich peo­ple chow down. Stein says you will learn to cook Span­ish dishes that will be per­fect dur­ing the Christ­mas break. Good heavens, is that the Span­ish am­bas­sador? You know, un­til this moment I hadn’t re­alised quite what a Span­ish-sound­ing word am­bas­sador is. Ole!
