Celebrity chef Rick Stein launches coastal-inspired home and cookware collection with Tesco

Famous for his love of seafood, celebrity chef Rick Stein has created a new range of home and cookware, inspired by his coastal surroundings

with communal eating and home cooking at its heart, it's a range that is subtle in influence and colour, allowing it to fit seamlessly into existing schemes and

The range will be available nationwide from 22 September 2014 in Tesco stores. Prices start from £4 for a side plate.
