Tasty Europe Pledge Event

In this 30-minute buffet of taste treats, Rick Steves eats his merry way through Europe. One delightful taste at a time, we'll learn how food is a prime ingredient in what defines cultures all across the Continent.

Join Rick as he slurps seasonal raw herring in Holland and then savors a "zero kilometer," farm-to-table country feast with a noble family in Tuscany. We'll drink some local firewater during the salad course in Bulgaria. And then we'll enjoy the elegant simplicity of steak tartare and foie gras in the garden of a French château. From dining al fresco in Rome, to joining the locals on a Madrid pub crawl, to learning the secrets of a wine lover's enoteca in Verona, Rick learns that slowing down to truly appreciate what you eat is an essential part of any great travel experience.

With this special, the welcome's warm, the kitchen's jammin', the table's set…and you are an honored guest. Sure, there are a lot of calories — but they're far from empty, and you'll never forget this progressive feast. Don't miss "Rick Steves' Tasty Europe"!
