The River Cottage Cookbook
More than just a collection of Hugh's recipes, this book is a witty, practical guide to the River Cottage lifestyle from Channel 4's iconoclastic back-to-basics chef. Includes tips on how best to buy organic produce and, for the more adventurous, advice on rearing your own meat, growing your own vegetables, and tapping into the free wild harvest. 'How much of this book you incorporate into your life is up to you. But if all you do is grow a few herbs in a window box, make nettle soup once a year, and try a free-range goose for Christmas instead of a frozen turkey, you will already, I hope, be enjoying your life more.' Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall With over one hundred recipes and Simon Wheeler's acclaimed photography, The River Cottage Cookbook has been a hugely influential and original book, appealing to all downshifters and those who prefer their food to be full-blooded and wholesome. The River Cottage Cookbook has won the Andre Simon Food Book of the Year Award, the Guild of Food Writers' Michael Smith Award and the Glenfiddich Trophy and Food Book of the Year.
