This is the first of a series of ten films about ten grill recipes from nine different countries.

With summer in the air, grilling is upmost on our minds and what better time to be dusting off the barbecue and enjoying an open fire with a cold one.

The journey is accompanied by poems of places and countries to introduce each of the recipes, leaving Chef Stefan Kraus to bring across the simplicity of the dishes.


A piece of Italy for home: veal steak. Grilled green asparagus. Raw ham. Salsa from tomatoes. Capers. For connoisseurs of seasonal cuisine.

Buon appetito!

Do you know the land where lemon trees blossom;

where golden oranges glow amid dark leaves?

A gentle wind blows from the blue sky,

the myrtle stands silent, the laurel tall:

do you know it?

There, O there

I desire to go with you, my beloved!
