Author(s): Keith Floyd
A paperback edition of Keith Floyd's bestselling book which accompanied the television series of the same name. Floyd tours around the Mediterranean countries, looking at the different cuisines, lifestyles and countries, and cooking as he goes.
In Floyd around the Med, Keith Floyd shares his experiences of travelling around the Mediterranean, exporing the food, drink and people of each region.
He mixes with the glamorous jet-setters of Monte Carlo, endures a vertical mule ride in the Greek Islands, and shares wine with the monks of Saint Honorat off the Riviera coast. He barters in Turkish bazaars and Tunisian souks, explores undiscovered pueblos of Spain, checks out the North African coast and shares pink gins with the ex-pats of Marbella. And in each place of course Floyd cooks up delicious dishes using local produce.
The countries he visits are Greece, France, Spain, Turkey, Morocco, Tunisia and Egypt.
Keith Floyd was born in 1943 and educated at Wellington School, Somerset.

He presented 14 highly successful television cookery and travel series, and was the author of 15 bestselling books. When not hurtling around the world, he spent his time fishing and sailing in Marbella, Spain.
