Rick Stein fulfills a long-held dream to relive a road trip along the Californian coastline and across the border into Mexico. For his latest culinary travel adventure he returns to northern California almost 50 years after his initial visit to experience all the things that influenced him and his life – great music, great food, great scenery – and gathers cooking inspiration from the people he meets along the way. His trip takes him south from magical San Francisco and down the Pacific Coast Highway to the Mexican border. Along the way he discovers the best dishes in the west: clam chowder, the finest sourdough bread, chopped salad and a grilled steak breakfast. Rick then swaps his sporty Mustang car for the crew bus as his epic journey continues into enticing and exciting Mexico, from Northern Baja to the Yucatán, where he showcases fish tacos, carne con chile, mole sauce and pibil – vibrant dishes that are loved across the world.
