BBC Books acquires more Rick Stein

<p>BBC Books has acquired a tie-in title to accompany chef Rick Stein&#39;s forthcoming series about Spanish food.<br /><br />BBC Books senior publishing director, Shirley Patton bought world rights (all languages) to <em>Rick Stein&#39;s Spain</em> from Barbara Levy at the Barbara Levy Literary Agency.<br /><br />&quot;I&rsquo;ve wanted to make a series in Spain for a long time,&quot; said Stein. &quot;I love Spanish food, I&rsquo;ve been going there since I was a young boy&mdash;but until quite recently I don&rsquo;t think people really took the food seriously . . . No one cooks fish with more respect or grills meat better.&quot;<br /><br />The title will follow Stein&#39;s journey from Galicia where he will sample seafood, Cantabria where he will find chorizo, trout in Navarra and the tapas bars of Seville. Stein&#39;s four-part BBC 2 series of the same name will be broadcast next spring, plus a Christmas special.<br /><br /><em>Rick Stein&#39;s Spain</em> will be published on 5th May 2011. </p>
