Shane visits Fethiye – it has always been one of Turkey’s most fertile and ecologically diverse regions. Today, it’s ground-zero for every English tourist seeking to escape the British climate. Shane wants to see what’s going on beyond the beach bars and the bikini-clad tourists who flock to this impossibly picturesque seashore. Has the local cuisine – celebrated for thousands of years for its creative use of the peerless fresh produce and wild ingredients – been swamped by a glut of cheeseburgers, French fries and warm lager?
