Rick Stein Tastes the Blues

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Mon­day, 8.30pm, Life­Style Food Mr Stein’s most ex­cel­lent food ad­ven­ture in the Amer­i­can south was shown on ABC1 in Septem­ber. I re­marked at the time that, apart from blue­ber­ries, and some hor­ri­ble ar­ti­fi­cial colour­ings, there is no blue food. So when an ex­pe­ri­enced chef is in a pro­gram in which he tastes the blues, you can bet he’s not talk­ing about con­sum­ing them. With­out ex­pla­na­tion, Stein opens the show driv­ing across the Mis­sis­sippi River in the state of the same name. He tells us it is the most fer­tile place in Amer­ica and also one of the poor­est. He loves the mu­sic but is also fas­ci­nated by the muchloved south­ern dishes in­grained in the lyrics of blues songs — corn bread, but­ter beans, black-eyed peas, fried chicken and turnip
