Celebrating Europe’s Artisans
Enjoy Rick's live Monday Night Travel party with this video recorded on June 21, 2021. Experience the fun, conviviality, intimacy, and spontaneity of joining Rick in his living room as he shares his personal, inspirational, and sometimes hilarious behind-the-scenes commentary.
In Europe, so many things are done with artisanal care. Join Rick in meeting a wide variety of Europeans who bring this pride and attention to detail to their own little slice of the world: Cesare, the coppersmith of Montepulciano; the Dutch, whose art is farming tulips and creating new land by reclaiming it from under the sea; Stanway House in England's Cotswolds, where the eccentric Earl of Wemyss builds a towering homemade geyser; Swiss cheesemakers in the high Alps; and an entire street of artisans in Bulgaria's Veliko Tarnovo. Then we'll zip down to Egypt to enjoy the lovable chaos of merchants and artisans. To accompany our virtual journey, Rick will be enjoying some finely crafted French foods: pâté, cheese, baguette, and wine from Bordeaux.
