Rick Stein's Long Weekends in Iceland airs tonight on BBC 2
Last February we had a visit from Denham's productions, but this company produces all of Rick Stein's shows. This particular visit was for filming of the new series, Rick Stein's Long Weekends. Visit Reykjavík's marketing team was there to assist and connect the production team with all participants and the result is airing tonight on BBC 2 in the United Kingdom.

He has also cooked for The Queen and Prince Philip, Tony Blair, Margaret Thatcher and French President, Jacques Chirac. Rick is best known for a love of fresh seafood and made his name in the 90’s with his earliest books and television series based on his life as chef and owner of The Seafood Restaurant in the fishing port of Padstow on the North Coast of Cornwall. As he said at the time “nothing is more exhilarating than fresh fish simply cooked.” Since then he has expanded his horizons to cover numerous journeys over the world in search of great dishes, and also increased his business empire.
