Rick Steves advocates smart, affordable, perspective-broadening travel. As host and writer of the popular public television series RICK STEVES' EUROPE, and best-selling author of 40 European travel books, he encourages Americans to travel as "temporary locals."
He helps American travelers connect much more intimately and authentically with Europe — and Europeans — for a fraction of what mainstream tourists pay.
When it comes to good eating, Europe is a food lover's wonderland: elegant cuisine, rustic delights, seasonal treats, beloved bakeries, a passion for wine, and slow food rather than fast food. However you slice it, Europeans take pride in their food: eating well is living well.
In this tasty, half-hour program, we dine with Rick Steves as he enjoys Europe's very best — from gourmet tapas in Galicia to the trattoria of your dreams in Rome, and from the catch of the day in Greece to the ancient vines and wines of Burgundy.
For garlicky snails, creamy buffalo mozzarella, savory bouillabaisse, the best of the wurst, and much more, join Rick on this fun celebration of European cuisine — "Delicious Europe."
