Rick Stein: From Venice to Istanbul BBC2, 9.30pm
Rick Stein has never been the sort of man to rest on his laurels. Instead, he’s travelled to far-flung places to taste culinary treats in various countries, and some of his adventures have been televised, including jaunts to the Far East, Spain, India and Germany. Now he’s on the road again - and the title of this new series gives away two of the places he’ll be visiting en route. He begins in the Italian city, one of the world’s most beautiful and extraordinary places. From there he takes in the sights and sounds - as well as the tastes - of Greece.
