If there are two things Rick Stein is passionate about they are good food and travel, and now one of the world's most highly respected chefs is set to share his passions with audiences in Australia when Blanco presents Rick Stein's Food Odyssey. Rick's first ever theatre show on these shores will open at Perth's Burswood Theatre in late March, then tour to Melbourne and Brisbane before two final shows are held at the Sydney Opera House.

Throughout a two-hour culinary journey Rick will bring his travels to life, working with his guest chef to prepare an array of dishes, and captivating audiences along the way with stories and footage from his TV series. His philosophy on food is to find joy in cooking and eating and Rick Stein's Food Odyssey reflects his unbound enthusiasm for all things culinary.

Rick Stein has attained huge popularity and acclaim for his numerous TV cookery series and documentaries, as well as his best-selling cookery books. His zeal for quality fresh food and sustainable fishing and farming practices, has taken him from continent to continent, across magnificent shorelines in search of the very best produce the world has to offer.

Rick Stein's Food Odyssey gives audiences the unique opportunity to see a master in action as he and his guest chef prepare a variety of culinary delights, from fishy favourites in Cornwall, to vibrant and colourful Mediterranean cuisine, onwards to the light spicy flavours of South-East Asia and culminating in a unique Australian dish.

James Cundall, Producer, Lunchbox Theatrical Productions says: "The show combines a wonderful theatrical setting with a fascinating demonstration of cooking by a culinary genius, who blends his love of food with lively conversation and anecdotes from his travels around the world. It is humorous, enlightening, but above all a joyous evening's entertainment."

Rick Stein started out 35 years ago, opening a seafood restaurant on the north coast of Cornwall in the south-west of England, and soon his passion for food saw his Cornish business expand to now encompass five restaurants and a pub; a delicatessen, patisserie and gift shop; a cookery school and 40 hotel rooms across a portfolio of boutique properties. He also co-owns with his fiance Sarah Burns, the award-winning restaurant Rick Stein At Bannisters at Mollymook on the south coast of New South Wales and is a shareholder in Tower Estate winery in the famous Hunter Valley.

His latest TV series Rick Stein's Far Eastern Odyssey received audience acclaim when it screened on ABC1 earlier this year, and the accompanying book is extremely popular. His latest series Rick Stein's Fruits of the Sea is currently screening on Foxtel's Lifestyle Food Channel and food enthusiasts have also seen him recently on Masterchef and Masterchef Junior.

His knowledgeable, accessible and endearing style not only reflects his love of fresh produce -- and unashamed fondness for all things "fish" -- but his ability to weave in social, cultural and historical information takes his programming out of the realm of a simple "cooking show", and as such Rick's programmes regularly feature in the networks' top-rating series, making him one of the most popular international chefs in their line-up.

In his long career Rick Stein has cooked for The Queen, Presidents and Prime Ministers -- Rick Stein's Food Odyssey offers Australians a rare opportunity to see one of the world's top chefs live on stage as he and his special guest cook up exciting recipes from around the globe.

Rick Stein's Food Odyssey is produced by Etchells Enterprises, Lunchbox Theatrical Productions, and David Atkins Enterprises.
