In their fourth and final gastronomic expedition, Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon set out from the ruins of Troy in modern-day Turkey as they head to Greece to retrace the steps of legendary king Odysseus, the hero of Homer’s epic poem The Odyssey.

They visit Lesvos, where Sappho wrote her love poetry; Macedonia, where Aristotle was born and tutored Alexander the Great; Athens, home of Plato and Socrates; the Peloponnese, the land of Mycenae, Argos, Sparta and the entrance to the underworld, before finally arriving at Ithaca, home to Odysseus.

Steve and Rob’s semi-fictional alter-egos seek out culture, history, breath-taking vistas and, of course, some of the finest food in Europe.
