Sometimes it’s the most surprising journeys that lead us to where new need to be…
Under A Mackerel Sky
is an evocative memoir of one of Britain’s most famous foodie exports – and we don’t mean Devonshire tea. We’re talking about Rick Stein: chef, restaurateur, and television presenter.
Stein’s autobiography is strikingly honest and moving, but it peppered with laughs in order to break up the more serious memories of the chef’s life. When Rick Stein was eighteen, a tragic family event moved him enough to set him adrift in a listless sea – at heart, Stein felt lost and unsure of what to do in his life.
This search for a purpose led Rick to outback Australia, before he moved on to America and Mexico. He would come to entrepreneur a mobile disco, The Purple Tiger
, and of course his passion for cooking would become an intangible influence on his life.
This is a surprising memoir that will prove that there is much more to this cherished chef than most of us believe.
