Rick Stein Life

Christopher Richard "Rick" Stein, (born 4 January 1947), is an English celebrity chef, restaurateur, and television presenter.

Jill Stein, a business partner, has been running the Stein hotel and restaurant chain in the United Kingdom for more than forty years.

In Padstow, the company employs several well-known restaurants, shops, and hotels, as well as other restaurants in Marlborough, Winchester, and Barnes.

He and his second wife Sarah are also the head chef and co-owner of "Rick Stein at Bannisters" in Mollymook and Port Stephens, Australia.

He has written cookery books and appeared on television programs.

Early years

Christopher Richard Stein, of German descent, was born in Churchill, Oxfordshire, on January 4, 1947, to Eric and Dorothy Stein. He was born and raised on a farm.

Stein was educated at Wells Court, a preparatory school just outside Tewkesbury, followed by Wells House, the Court's bigger sister-school at Malvern Wells, and then Uppingham School. He obtained A-levels in English, History, and Geography, but failed all three of them. He moved to a cram school in Brighton, receiving E grades in English and History.

Stein completed a hotel management traineeship at the Great Western Royal Hotel in Paddington. He was a chef at the University for six months. He went to Australia at the age of 19, where he served as a laborer in an abattoir and as a clerk in a naval dockyard, distraught by his father's suicide. Around that time, he travelled to New Zealand and Mexico to "take some time out."

He read extensively, reflected on his approach to education, and applied to New College, Oxford, where he obtained an English degree in 1971. He went to Padstow shortly after that.

Personal life

When Stein was 18, his father, a former managing director of The Distillers Company, killed himself by jumping off a cliff near the family's holiday home in Trevose Head after suffering from bipolar disorder.

In Padstow, Stein married Jill Newstead for the first time. They married in 1975 and opened their restaurant and hotel company. Jill Stein has three sons, Edward, Jack, and Charles, who are involved in the family company.

In 1997, Stein met Sarah Burns, 20 years his junior, while working as a publicity manager for Australia's Gourmet Traveller magazine. Before Jill found out and divorced Stein in 2007, the two men had a five-year relationship, but they decided to continue to operate the company together. On October 7, 2011, Stein and Burns married.

Stein has a brother, John, and a sister, Henrietta. He has a half-brother, Jeremy, who was his mother's son from his first marriage. Judge Jules' uncle is also a DJ and music engineer.

Stein is a patron of the National Mission for Deep Sea Fishermen, the National Coastwatch Institute, the Dyslexia Research Trust, and The National Trust.


Rick Stein Career


Stein converted a cellphone disco in Padstow, which he had rented as a student, into a quayside nightclub with his friend, Johnny. It was first known for its freeze-dried curries. However, the nightclub lost its license and was barred by the police, mainly because of frequent brawls with local fishermen. The pair had a license for a restaurant in another part of the building, so they continued with that to avoid bankruptcy. Stein managed the kitchen from the knowledge he had gained as a commiss chef. He converted it into a small harbour-side bistro named "The Seafood Restaurant" in 1975 with his first wife Jill. His company, which includes a bistro, a café, a seafood delicatessen, a pâtisserie shop, a gift shop, and a cookery school, is operated by him as of 2015. Cornish nationalists posed a threat to Stein's businesses in 2007. Padstow's economy has been sorely affected that it has been dubbed "Padstein" by the locals.

Stein made his first purchase in the village of St Merryn, 32 miles from Padstow, in 2009, intending to keep it as a traditional Cornish pub.

Stein and his future second wife (fiancée at the time), Sarah Burns, opened "Rick Stein at Bannisters" in Mollymook, Australia, in October 2009. "I've been thinking of the fresh blue sea and sweet seafood of Merimbula in the sixties," Stein said at the time of opening."

Stein's second wife, Sarah, opened a second "Rick Stein at Bannisters" in Salamander Bay, Port Stephens, in 2018. Stein has earned a following on food shows. On BBC television, after appearing as a guest chef in Keith Floyd's 1985 film Floyd on Food and as a guest chef in Floyd's 1986 film Floyd on Food, he was given the opportunity to host his own series, like the "travelogue" style of cookery shows pioneered by Floyd. This caused some rivalry, even feud, that only became resolved shortly before Floyd's death. Rick Stein's 'Taste of the Sea, Fruits of the Sea, Seafood Odyssey, Fresh Food, Seafood Lovers' Handbook, French Odyssey, Far Eastern Odyssey, Rick Stein's Spain, and Rick Stein's India included Rick Stein's Taste of the Sea, Fruits of the Sea, Fruits of the Sea, Fruits of the Sea, Rick Stein's Seafood Odyssey, Seafood Lovers' Guide, Food Heroes, Seafood Lovers' Guide, Rick Stein' He set out in the last five series on a quest for the best in the region's cuisine.

Stein was often accompanyed by his Jack Russell terrier, Chalky, until his 2007 death at the age of 17. Chalky was so popular that Sharp's Brewery named two speciality beers after him, that a late day motion was tabled in the British House of Commons mourning his death. However, three other signatories attended the early day motion.

Much of Stein's television appearances have been released on VHS tape or DVD, but no one has been able to broadcast any of the early pioneering series. However, much has been licensed to the Good Food cable TV channel, where it has been broadcasting with some heavy editing (and therefore omitting up to 20% of the original broadcast video) to allow for the inclusion of advertisements.

Each collection has been supplemented by a book, and Stein's book English Seafood Cookery received the Glenfidich Award for Food Book of the Year in 1989. In the 2018 New Year Honours for services to the economy, Stein was awarded the OBE in 2003 New Year Honours for services to tourism in Cornwall and the CBE.

The restaurant in Porthleven, Cornwall, would close permanently due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which occurred on June 22, 2020. Since March 2020, the restaurant had been closed. In July, chef Michael Caines would take over the restaurant.

EXCLUSIVE: A mature student who won a £5m London town house in an Omaze prize draw has put the property on the market just two months after winning it.

All of the towns and villages below are different. Yet each, in its own way, offers the ultimate coastal living.
