Au facut cei de la BBC shop si se pot cumpara documentare, filme sau doar cate un episod. Nu sunt sigura daca merge si in afara UK-ului.
Ce am mai vazut:
Rick Stein's German Bite - nu este o emisiune foarte spectaculoasa dar e plina de informatii dincolo de cliseele stiute.
https://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2013/aug/06/tv-review-rick-steins-german-bite Un pic cam scortos editorialul...nu prea pricep tafna, nu e ca si cum si englezii se promoveaza cu o arta culinara ceva de speriat...not.
Anyway, am gasit si gratis episodul
Seria mea preferata a fost insa Rick Stein's Mediterranean Escapes
Imi place cum vorbeste despre istoria locurilor: Corsica, Sardinia, Mallorca, Turcia, Maroc. Combina povestile despre mancare cu literatura si pasaje potrivite locurilor pe care le ia la picior.
A trecut in seria asta: prin Puglia, loc care cica l-ar fi inspirat pe Tolkien cand a descris casele din cartea lui. Sunt referinte despre DH Lawrence plus altii si altii.
Cu ocazia asta am auzit de Elizabeth David https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elizabeth_David
"a British cookery writer who, in the mid-20th century, strongly influenced the revitalisation of the art of home cookery with articles and books about European cuisines and traditional British dishes.
Born to an upper-class family, David rebelled against social norms of the day. She studied art in Paris, became an actress, and ran off with a married man with whom she sailed in a small boat to Italy, where their boat was confiscated. They were nearly trapped by the German invasion of Greece in 1940 but escaped to Egypt where they parted. She then worked for the British government, running a library in Cairo. While there she married, but the marriage was not long-lived.
After the war, David returned to England, and, dismayed by the gloom and bad food, wrote a series of articles about Mediterranean food that caught the public imagination, and in 1950 A Book of Mediterranean Food. She boldly called for ingredients such as aubergines, basil, figs, garlic, olive oil and saffron, which at the time were scarcely available even in London. Within a few years, however, paella, moussaka, ratatouille, hummus and gazpacho became familiar dishes across Britain, both in restaurants and in home cooking."
