Rick Stein

Celebrity Chef

Rick Stein is one of the Britain and Australia’s favourite cookery writers and chefs.


But he didn't always harbour ambitions to be an award-winning chef. After graduating from Oxford University with a degree in English, he spent a few years running a discotheque before buying a nightclub in Padstow. Fortunately for us, the venture was not a success and Rick turned to food as a way out.

What is the point of this website if none of the replies are from Rick Stein? Does he answer questions posed on this website?

I have watched you cook pork and make great crackling many times. Does it really happen every time or do you have lots of takes and manage it about 1 in 5 like me?

I have a small restaurant in Oatley, South West of Sydney and I must say,that I am inspired by Rick Stein ,I stay all hours of the night to watch him ,over and over again . My husband commented and when are you going to cook like him? I have about 6 receipe books and used them often. I would actually love to visit him in Padstow. How lucky are you Mr Rick Stein to have such beautiful produce to work with. I envy you immensely ,keep up the good work .............

So great to have Rick's series back on TV after being absent for quite some time. I watch them over and over and never get tired of them. Its just lovely to see Chalky in the older ones too. Our dog died in the same year as Chalky after a long life. Still miss him too.

Hi. I watched Seafood Odyssey - think it was that - last Monday on Lifestyle. You made a dish that you called a Country pie not a Shepherds pie. Have looked all through recipes and can't see it. would love to know it. Norma
